Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve – 17km

Hluhluwe–Imfolozi Park, formerly Hluhluwe–Umfolozi Game Reserve, is the oldest proclaimed nature reserve in Africa. It consists of 960 km² (96,000 ha) of hilly topography and is known for its rich wildlife and conservation efforts. The park is the only state-run park in KwaZulu-Natal where each of the big five game animals can be found. Due to conservation efforts, the park in 2008 had the largest population of white rhino in the world.

Sodwana Bay – 95km

World class diving – Classified as one of the top dive sites in the world, the park is visited by some 35 000 scuba divers per year. The 50 km reef complex is the habitat of a wide diversity of resident and migratory species. Several submarine canyons cut into the edge of the continental shelf, which is very close to the shoreline. It was in one of these that on 27 November 2000 that a resident population of coelacanths was discovered.

False Bay | Lake St Lucia – 12 km

Lake St Lucia is an estuarine lake system. It is the largest estuarine lake in Southern Africa, covering an area of approximately 350 km 2, and falls within the iSimangaliso Wetland Park (a World Heritage Site).
