Shongweni Resource Reserve, about halfway between Durban and Pietermaritzburg off the N3, is Rte 5 and Rte 6 of the 1000 Hills Experience. Part of a beautiful river valley and grassland area, it has a number of mammals (including giraffes, zebras and rhinos) and birds. Canoeing is available (R75/90 per half/full day). The reserve has massive safari-style tents erected on wooden platforms perched over the lake’s edge. Each has a small balcony and an outdoor table and basic kitchen facilities. Camping costs R70 per person.
