Join WOWZULU as we explore the rich cultural and natural wealth of the region.
The area has an untouched feel, and is waiting to be discovered by travellers
with a sense of adventure.
TheFar North is the nexus of where Mozambique, Swaziland and South Africa meet, and our many experiences give you insight into the melting pot of culture that has emerged from this dynamic fusion of Zulu, Thonga and Swazi culture. This provides exciting opportunities for cultural tourism and story-telling, both in terms of history as well as authentic interactions with the different ‘living’ tribal communities such as the Mathenjwas andTembes whose traditional domains span the different countries.
This area is one of the most exciting wilderness and wildlife destinations, including the Tembe Elephant Park which reputedly houses the world’s largest tuskers; Ndumo Game Reserve with its internationally acclaimed birding experience, as well as a number of private game reserves; the environmentally rich Kosi Bay lake system and Banga Neck turtle breeding areas of the iSimangaliso Wetlands Park World Heritage Site; and the soaring Lebombo Mountain Range on the Swaziland border. As part of the proposed Lebombo Trans-frontier Park, the far north also links into a much larger potential wilderness/conservation area across KZN, Mozambique and Swaziland, making for an all-round eco and cultural experience of a lifetime.
