KwaZulu Nata (KZN) is a coastal South African province, best known for its beaches, mountains and savannah populated by big game. When one thinks of KZN thoughts of either Durban or the Drakensberg comes to mind. It has mostly been a destination where you don't really travel with your dogs, but has started becoming more popular as a destination for the whole family, including dogs! The areas to visit are varied and dog-friendly places including restaurants, beaches and accommodations are growing. Sadly though, most of the nature reserves and game reserves do not allow dogs. The region is quite conducive to an outdoor and adventure lifestyle.
We like to choose where to go based on what it has to offer us an experience: beaches and mountains getaways are prime in KZN.
Some of our favourite destinations include: Margate, Durban, St Lucia, Richards Bay on the coast and Ladismith and Drakensberg more inland.

|Establishments around KZN are becoming more open to receiving well-behaved pets. Sadly, most of the nature reserves still do not allow dogs, but do check with the establishment, restaurant or hiking trail prior to your arrival.
