KZN COAST AND BIG 5 GAME VIEWING
How does 10 days of cruising one of the most wave rich and un-crowded coastlines, in the world sound? Music to any surfer€™s ear! Did we mention you will have 2 days cruising one of South Africa€™s best BIG 5 game parks! Just to make sure you are guaranteed a really good trip, you will have your very own, super switched on, experienced guide to ensure you in the zone you need to be in to score. All you need to do is sit back relax and enjoy the African Adventure of a lifetime.
For small groups of friends, families, couples or a few surfing mates. This is one of the most stress free ways to visit and enjoy South Africa.
The KZN coastline is vast and full of empty points, beachies, reefs and slabs. It€™s got something for everyone. It€™s an extremely beautiful area year round but especially in the winter months when the morning offshore winds blow without fail. The key to scoring is being dialed in and knowing where the sand is. Tide wind and swell direction are all key factors to various spots lighting up and without local know ledge and experience it would be hard to put oneself in the right zone. The surf absolutely cooks over her but you got to know where to be!
Best months: April - September
