Ndumo, Elephant Coast

Right on the northern-most border of the South African province of KwaZulu Natal lies the little settlement of Ndumo. It is bordered by both Swaziland and Mozambique, enjoying the subtropical climate of this exquisite part of the country.

It is situated in Northern Moputoland, and its border with Mozambique is formed by the abundant Usuthu River. Although small, the town of Ndumo is situated only 400 kilometres from the capital city and tourist hub of the province, Durban (home to the King Shaka International Airport). It is approximately 650 kilometres from Pretoria in Gauteng, which is close to the OR Tambo International Airport.

Being away from the glitz and glamour of the big cities, Ndumo enjoys a different kind of appeal. It is naturally diverse and plentiful, with a wide variety of plant and animal species for visitors from all over the country and world to enjoy.

Some of the local bird species are so exciting that they attract visitors from afar. These include the southern-banded snake eagle, Pel’s fishing owl and broadbill, but there are countless others to spot. In addition, the Ndumo Game Reserve is a major attraction and is home to a number of animals, including plenty of antelope species, as well as hippopotamuses and crocodiles.
