Welcome to one of South Africa’s premier playgrounds


The sun blessed Southern Coast of Kwazulu-Natal truly is a sub-tropical paradise. Miles of palm fringed golden sandy beaches dotted with shallow fresh water lagoons. The warm Indian Ocean playground to dolphins and nursery to whales. Spectacular floral displays from indigenous vegetation supporting countless birds and wildlife and most of all a climate of long warm days and balmy nights.
