Richards Bay, South Africa
Richards Bay, on the Mhlatuze River in northern KwaZulu-Natal, was set up as a makeshift port during the Anglo-Boer war and is now a thoroughly modern city. Built around South Africa's largest harbour, it’s a popular north-coast holiday destination, luring visitors with warm temperatures year-round, glorious natural environs and a string of unspoiled beaches.
Richards Bay is the gateway to Zululand, a region of exquisite and diverse beauty, including the largest estuarine system in Southern Africa, vast wetlands and a coastline that stretches some 350 kilometers.
Richards Bay Game Reserve
Richards Bay Game Reserve was set up to protect lagoon animals formerly subject to intensive slaughtering. It also shelters numerous aquatic birds and animals including hippos and crocodiles.
