UNDER THE FOREST CANOPY OVERLOOKING THE INDIAN OCEAN
Zimbali, meaning “valley of flowers” in isiZulu, perfectly captures the iconic Zimbali Coastal Resort in which the property is situated. A stay here will set you within a 5 minutes’ drive from the thriving hub of Ballito, and just a 20 minutes’ drive from King Shaka International Airport.
The accommodation hits the sweet spot between classic elegance and modernity, with interiors accentuated by warm wooden finishes and autumn tones. Private decks offer a front-row seat to the glorious surrounds – an indigenous forest brimming with butterflies, bush buck and birds. Zimbali Lodge also caters for small conferences and holds its own as a highly sought-after wedding venue. Whether you arrive with a loved one, your family or as a solo traveller, expect to be pampered like a movie star by the attentive valets and knowledgeable concierge.
Aside from the elegant dining options, the eco-estate is a treasure trove of activities and needs no introduction to keen golfers who can tee off from the championship 18-hole course. Enjoy that perfect day out at the secluded beach just a stone’s throw away from the lodge or venture further afield to explore the game parks, marine reserves, glittering coastlines and estuaries within the surrounding regions.
