Stay or go?

Go. It would be re­miss not to sug­gest don­ning your khakis for a sa­fari fur­ther north in Kwazu­luNatal. Try Thanda Pri­vate Game

Re­serve ( pic­tured), 150 sq km of rolling hills, grass­lands and man­groves that prom­ise a high fre­quency of Big Five sight­ings.

His­tory buffs may favour a stay at one of the lodges around Rorke’s

Drift and Isan­dl­wana, the set­tings for two of the An­glo-zulu War’s most fa­mous bat­tles. Fugi­tives’ Drift Lodge (fugi­tives­drift.com) has a team of lec­tur­ers who lead groups on vivid tours of the bat­tle­fields.

The fi­nal must-see, around a 90-minute drive from Dur­ban, is the Nel­son Man­dela Cap­ture

Site, where Man­dela was ar­rested in 1962. While a new mu­seum re­mains in­def­i­nitely un­fin­ished, it’s worth the trip sim­ply to ad­mire the site’s land­mark sculp­ture – a sil­hou­ette of Man­dela’s head. Stop at nearby How­ick Falls on the way back, ei­ther for a photo op or to hit one of the walk­ing trails.
