Outside the gates of Thula Thula, experience the beauty and surrounding areas of the North Coast of Kwa-Zulu Natal, affectionately known by the locals as the ‘dolphin coast’. A discovery of African life, magnificent birdlife, hippo & croc at sunsets and picnic with the Big 5! Be immersed in the rich experiences of intriguing Zulu customs, tribal dancing, spear making and Zulu beer drinking. Why not visit the Anglo-Zulu War memorials and hear stories of courage, self-sacrifice, bloodshed & tragedy?
This has been a wonderful experience. We have learned so much. We came here because we learned to love Nana, Frankie and their herd through Lawrence?s book, and now we feel we are part of the herd. Thank you for everything. Especially your warmth and good humour.
P.S. We were delighted to see the rhino as well. The Norwegian 8
