Durban / Mozambique Surfaris, South Africa
African Surfaris are a minimum one week for the Durban/KwaZulu trip – longer if you want to extend into Mozambique. Surfers fly into Durban and are put up in hotels/self catering apartments at Umhlanga to the north of Durban, or more rustic accommodations south of Durban on a remote right hand point. Each location provides quick and easy surf access fronting the property, and your guide is always available for a road trip into the surrounding area.
Unhlanga is a high end costal suburb of Durban complete with restaurants, bars, shopping and lively boardwalk. Your hotel/apartment will be chosen to suit the size of your group ranging from 1 – 3 bedrooms complete with ensuite bathrooms, TV, stereo and complete kitchen.. You may choose to prepare some of your own meals, eat at the hotel restaurant, or dine out at one of the local establishments. In contrast, the small town environment south of Durban provides little more then clean uncrowded surf and miles of pristine coastline. Meals are catered for on site or your guide will choose one of the local eateries.
Umfoloze & Hluhlue Game Resereve is all about tent camping. These tents are large permanent structures with cots and bedding. There is a communal BBQ and restroom facilities. You will shop prior to entering the park for all food, and there is the option of one restaurant inside the park. The tent camp is not a fenced area, so you may expect wild animals to wander through day or night. If you would like to upgrade your package to include game lodge accommodations with park range guides this request can be accommodated.
Once you enter Mozambique accommodations are often more flexible depending on the time of year you travel. Accommodations will range from comfortable clean rooms in the home of an African Surfaris preferred contact, to self catering 1 or 2 bedroom newly constructed air conditioned log cabins and houses overlooking the beach..
It is possible for you to choose any combination of nights in each style of accommodations in any location. However, as demand through the season can be high, especially in the game reserve, it is recommended that nights are pre-booked and adhered to in that schedule. Mozambique allows more flexibility.
