This summer #escape to the KZN South Coast Hinterland!


Umzumbe is said to have started as a band of cannibals and renegades who made their home on the river banks. The name means “bad kraal” and in 1828 king Shaka led a raid in this area, leaving behind a pile of lucky pebbles which have been trodden into the ground by countless travellers over the years.
Umzumbe has a plethora of activities to choose from. From bird watching in the wildlands to fishing at its blue flag beach, make Umzumbe your go-to this Summer.

Oribi Gorge

The KZN South Coast Hinterland is an adventurer’s wonderland. Unforgettable views from Leopards rock, adrenaline pumping adventure tours and relaxing waterfalls all await the avid adventurer.
Swing through the picturesque landscape on the world’s highest gorge swing, or pick Africa’s fastest and longest zip ride, the choice is yours! Game drives, horse riding and scooter tours are also available in the Lake Eland area.


The Ingeli forest area is perfect for a couples or family retreat. Tucked into the Ingeli Mountain ranges, this area is famed for its beautiful landscape and tranquility. Ingeli is the perfect area for inland exploration and relaxation. #Escape the city and kick back at one of the many resorts in the area.
Kick back and soak up the hidden Harding history. Harding is probably the most unassuming town on the KZN South Coast, but its history is nothing short of colorful. Tales of gun runners, ivory traders and brave warriors are a staple in the Harding area. Head on down to Harding Country Club and you may meet a distant relative of Dingaan’s trusted translator!


For the cultural adventurer, take a trip through to the “place of the Nzimakwe” rural village. Easily accessible from the R69 road between Mpenjati Nature Reserve and Ezinqoleni, this rural village is rich in arts and culture. Head on through to the WowZulu Welcome Centre, where local artists display their artwork and crafts. Walks and cultural exploration can be arranged from here as well. These outwalks will take you past a traditional healer, a cattle kraal and organic garden, a local Shembe Church and up to Xhuluweshe. A community theatre and art academy can be found nestled here as well.


KwaXolo is famed for a range of caves that showcase 100 000 year old San painting and tell the story of an ancient, but thriving community years before the San migrated further North.
The KwaXolo area can be accessed on a Great Drive Out. Dirt roads allow for further exploration of the scenic and rural hinterland.


Nyandezulu is a rural village 9km inland from Shelly beach, which is home to some of the best scenic views in KwaZulu Natal. Stay in a guesthouse in the village and take guided tours or hike to the Ntantana Mountain which overlooks the spectacular Nyandezulu waterfall. Walk to a Shembe Church at the top of the holy uMdlungwana mountain, said to harbour a seven-headed water monster!
