  The Amatigulu Lagoon
by MikeAtSea

Amatigulu Nature Reserve is situated on the Indian Ocean coastline in Northern KwaZulu-Natal between the Tugela and Amatikulu River mouths. The Reserve is approximately 100 km from Durban and is one of the few places in Southern Africa where wildlife can be viewed feeding on forested dunes overlooking the sea.
Visitors can indulge in a variety of game drives (4 X 4 required) and self-guided walks through the many vegetation types found in the reserve. The Coastal Forest grasslands and rivers attract much birdlife, including the rare african finfoot, and populations of giraffe, zebra, waterbuck and smaller antelope occur in the reserve. Other activities include canoeing on the Amatigulu Estuary and Nyoni River, boating and easy access to the beach where surf angling is good. Fishing in the estuary is also extremely rewarding and a whale watching tower is situated quite close to the camp.
