Declared South Africa’s first World Heritage Site in 1999, KwaZulu-Natal’s 332,000 hectare iSimangaliso Wetland Park is home to a massive variety of flora and fauna.

‘iSimangaliso’ — which means ‘miracle and wonder’ in the Zulu language, is a excellent destination for travellers visiting Durban and the surrounding areas of KwaZulu-Natal. Here are 10 reasons why you should visit the iSimangaliso Wetland Park.

Just as a precautionary note for our international travellers, iSimangaliso is roughly 227km from Durban (roughly Wales, North to South), so please do not rely on public transport, car hire in Durban is probably your only option if you’re planning on taking the trip. Car rental in South Africa is extremely cost effective.
