About Amatikulu Nature Reserve

Amatikulu Nature Reserve is perfect for a weekend getaway or for a day trip from Durban, Eshowe, Mtunzini or Richards Bay. The small reserve is situated on the coast between the Tugela and Amatikulu Rivers. It is one of the few places in Southern Africa where wildlife can be seen grazing on forested dunes overlooking the sea.

Explore the reserve in a canoe, 4X4 vehicle or on foot. The coastal forest grasslands and rivers attract numerous birds, including the rare African fin foot. Keen birders can hire trained bird guides from the local community. Giraffe, zebra, waterbuck and smaller antelope are frequently seen. The beach offers good surf angling.

Need to know?
Canoes are available for hire at R50 per day. An entrance fee is payable at the gates, open from 07:00 to 17:00.
