KwaZulu Natal - Self Drive

South Africa

British Airways has this year launched a new direct flight into Durban King Shaka International airport. And to celebrate that we have put together this offer in conjunction with our partners.

If a 'sun-lounger' holiday is not your thing, this exciting two-week tour of South Africa's KwaZulu Natal, packed with outdoor activities and excursions, might rock your boat. This trip takes you high into the Drakensberg on the Lesotho border, through the famous 1879 Zulu War battlefields, on safari in Zulu King Shaka's former hunting grounds, and ends with three days at the stunningly beautiful Oysterbox Hotel in Durban.
