KwaZulu Natal, nicknamed ‘the garden province’ is a province of South Africa covering c.95,000 K² (36,000 square miles) with a population of almost 13 million people. It is located in the southeast of the country, with a long shoreline on the Indian Ocean and sharing borders with three other provinces; Mpumalanga to the north Free State to the west and Eastern Cape to the southwest and the countries of Mozambique to the far northeast, Eswatini to the northeast and Lesotho to the southwest. Its capital and second city is Pietermaritzburg with around half a million inhabitants. The largest city is Durban with a population of c.4 million people. It is the second-most populous province in South Africa, with slightly fewer residents than Gauteng.

It has three different geographic areas and is the eastern most province in the country. The lowland region along the Indian Ocean coast is extremely narrow in the south, widening in the northern part of the province, while the central Natal Midlands consists of an undulating hilly plateau rising toward the west. Two mountainous areas, the western Drakensberg Mountains and northern Lebombo Mountains form, respectively, a solid basalt wall rising over 3,000 m (9,800 ft) beside Lesotho border and low parallel ranges of ancient granite running southward from Eswatini. The area’s largest river, the Tugela, flows west to east across the centre of the province. The coastal regions typically have subtropical thickets and deeper ravines; steep slopes host some Afromontane Forest. The midlands have moist grasslands and isolated pockets of Afromontane Forest. The north has a primarily moist savanna habitat, whilst the Drakensberg region hosts mostly alpine grassland.

Two areas in KwaZulu-Natal have been declared UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the iSimangaliso Wetland Park and the uKhahlamba Drakensberg Park; both are are wetlands of international importance for migratory species and are designated as Ramsar sites.

Birding KwaZulu-Natal

Well over 650 species have been recorded in the small province of KwaZulu-Natal, a product of its habitat diversity and its coastal position on the beautiful eastern seaboard of South Africa. From mangrove-fringed estuaries to the peaks of the Drakensberg Mountains, from the cool mistbelt forests to the bird-rich savanna of Zululand, KZN offers some of the best birding on the African continent. Of particular interest to the international birder are the more than 50 species endemic to the Southern African Subregion, a handful of which are only found here and in adjacent Mozambique.

KZN’s broad vegetation types of forest, savanna and grassland may be further subdivided into:

Subtropical, broad-leaved forest that runs the length of the coast, extending up to an altitude of 450m above sea level. It is home to numerous coastal specials, notably Spotted Ground-Thrush and Woodward’s Batis, and is well protected in the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park and Ngoye Forest.

Patches of temperate, Afro-montane forest (mistbelt forest) which occur in a narrow altitudinal belt between 900m and 1200m above sea level, and host a handful of Southern African endemics, notably Cape Parrot, Knysna Turaco, Chorister Robin-Chat, Bush Blackcap and Cape Batis. Highly threatened by felling for timber and conversion to commercial agro-forestry, accessible patches are protected in Weza-Ngele Forest and the Creighton Valley.

Savanna woodland, or bushveld, which covers much of the northern and inland areas, and supports a very rich avifauna. This habitat is widespread in eastern Africa and endemics are few, notable exceptions in KZN being Sabota Lark, Fiscal Flycatcher and White-throated Robin-Chat. Large areas of bushveld are protected in Mkhuze Game Reserve, Hluhluwe-Umfolozi Park, and a host of smaller reserves.

Grasslands that blanket KZN’s inland western regions, from sour grassland at medium altitudes to the Afro-Alpine grasslands in the Drakensberg massif. A number of regional endemics occur here, notably Drakenberg Rock-jumper and Drakenberg Siskin, both of which are easily seen on Sani Pass, the most accessible high-altitude site in Southern Africa.

Coastal grassland that occurs as part of the mosaic of habitats known as the East Coast Littoral, and is of interest to the birder for such tropical species as Swamp Nightjar and Rosy-throated Longclaw. The best example of this habitat is found in the Greater St Lucia Wetland Park.

Wetlands that range from estuaries to tropical pans and flooded grassland, from fast-flowing mountain streams to man-made impoundments. Warm oceanic waters off the coast support a variety of tropical seabirds, especially after cyclonic conditions in the Mozambique Channel.

Top Sites
  • Creighton Valley

    Satellite View
    The Creighton Valley in southern KZN provides superb access to the endemic-rich mistbelt forests and grasslands. The pristine forest supports endemics such as the endangered Cape Parrot (the brown-headed nominate race, now considered a separate species, which numbers fewer than 400 individuals); Knysna Turaco, Chorister Robin-Chat, Bush Blackcap, Barratt's Warbler, Cape Batis, Lesser Double-collared Sunbird, Swee Waxbill and Forest Canary. Other notable species are Forest Buzzard, Grey Cuckoo-shrike, Orange Ground-Thrush and White-starred Robin.

Trip Reports
  • 2006 [10 October] - Bo Beolens

    …We then drove to Franklin Marsh an area of reed-beds and open water with a wide variety of waterfowl, waders, herons and other water loving birds. Our main target here was African Rail and Malcolm heard one call so we tape lured for a while whilst having our picnic lunch and were treated to a glimpse of red bill sticking out from reeds near a small pool at the roadside. Further tape playing got the bird to show head and breast as well and, eventually everyone managed to see this skulker. During the course of watching this pool, luring the rail, a Baillon’s Crake flew across the same pool… tape luring produced return calls but not another visit…

    PDF Report
    This 16-day birding tour was designed to include many diverse South African ecosystems from the seemingly desolate landscape of the Kalahari Desert in the west to the lush and biodiverse forests of KwaZulu-Natal in the east. David and Catriona had a long list of target birds for the trip and it was these birds (and mammals) that we would primarily be focusing on. As we were covering a large portion of South Africa, it did mean a few big drives, however we generally had at least two nights at most destinations which meant we could explore the area and its wildlife before moving on.

    On this tour we recorded 272 species (plus an additional 30 species that were heard only), including a few cracking ones such as African Broadbill, African Wood Owl, Narina Trogon, Neergaard’s Sunbird, Eastern Bronze-naped Pigeon, and Drakensberg specials like Drakensberg Rockjumper and Bearded Vulture.
  • 2023 [11 November] - Ann Gifford

    PDF Report
    It had been raining when we went out at 5h30 with Kevin. Lovely views of Northern doublecollared sunbird and we also saw Dusky flycatcher at last. Black-headed puffback, Chorister and Cape robin chat were showing and singing well. We got rained on a little but as it had fined up we walked up into the forest. We only saw Orange ground thrush, Knysna turacao (partially), Jackal buzzard, and Barratt’s warbler which led us on a right old dance but I did have very good views of him albeit in the undergrowth. 😊 We missed seeing a couple of other birds as our guide was otherwise occupied with his camera.
