Overview
TThis is an ultra-marathon of approximately 89km that is held in KZN. It is an annual event that takes place during the second quarter of the year and is one of the oldest annual events in South Africa, as the first race took place in 1921. Run between the cities of Durban and Pietermaritzburg, the race alternates between an “up” and “down” run, from the coast inland and vice versa. Many call it the world's greatest ultra-marathon, and one of the reasons this fabled South African marathon has the title is because of the wealth of legends in its history.

Nestled along South African breathtaking Wild Coast, Inkwenkwezi Private Game Reserve is one of its own class big five private game reserves with an emphasis on luxury and thoughtful detail. Inkwenkwezi Private Game Reserve is situated in a prime malaria free zone in the Eastern Cape Province of South Africa. The reserve offers many unique opportunities as it encompasses five different regional eco-systems (biomes) and a tidal estuary. Inkwenkwezi, rich diversity of landscapes offers you an unparallel wildlife viewing experience.This Cintsa Valley land was mostly uncultivated and is rich in natural fauna and flora including some rare cycads species only found in the Eastern Cape. It is prolific in natural indigenous bush, aloes, has five of the biomes in the Eastern Cape, abundant bird life including the Stanley Bustard and Rare Ground Hornbill amongst the 180 identified species as recorded by Neil Smith, local ornithologist.Fencing of the reserve was started in 1983 and today two-thirds of the Reserve is fenced with the other one-third due to the fenced off by the end of the year. There is ongoing program of eradication of invasive plants but the Wildlife and Environmental Society, under the auspices of Avril Wilkinson, will be starting a Research Project, which will involve new concepts with invasive plants versus indigenous.Over the years, stocking of the game park has resulted in there being over 40 species of game, such as buffalo, rhino, lion and evidence and sightings (by adjacent farmers) of leopard which have been encouraged by the buck/game to return to the area. This reserve boasts the Big 5 but in fact if one considers the uniqueness of the reserve being adjacent to the coast and the possibility of spotting the Southern Wright Whale, it would be the big six! Inkwenkwezi Private Game Reserve has become a catalyst for employment in the area, having started with 10 people and now employing 80 with the numbers set to grow as the reserve develops further. During construction, only local companies, including builders, carpenters etc were contracted with both skilled and unskilled labour being provided by the local communities. To further encourage local employment, crafters will be encouraged to provide the Curio Shop with locally crafted items. Inkwenkwezi Private Game is a short distance away from magnificent beaches and a short convenient drive to and from the East London Airport.
