Zimbali is an upmarket coastal resort and residential estate situated just south of Ballito, roughly 30 kilometres from Durban. It is situated in a coastal forest region and has been designed in such a way that nature is incorporated into daily life. Accommodation in Zimbali is exquisitely stylish, appealing to those who like the good life.
The resort is both a residential haven as well as a luxurious getaway for discerning travellers. The resort covers 370 hectares, providing a sense of seclusion and exclusivity while the primary dune areas and 50 hectare nature reserve within the estate ensure that guests and residents alike are confronted with nature around every turn.
The resort is home to an array of wildlife from 85 bird species - which hover around the natural spring-water lakes - and numerous eye-catching butterfly species. Within the reserve you could run into species such as the vervet monkey, bush buck, blue duiker, bush baby, banded mongoose and wild pig. You can wonder around the serene protected area via a series of foot paths and take in the striking contrast between the lush greenery and shimmering blue ocean separated by the expanse of smooth white beach sand from one of the wooden viewing decks.
Zimbali has been designed with convenience and pleasure in mind, so while the setting is food for the soul, there is also a large variety of amenities available within the confines of the resort. Among them are tennis courts, a health and beauty spa, a golf course, and horse-riding. The resort's close proximity to Durban as well as other tourist attractions also makes accommodation in Zimbali popular.
Whether you decide to stay in one of the high-class hotels or rent a luxury self-catering house or apartment, you will be content. If one tires of the resort itself (unlikely) the beaches nearby offer surfing and KwaZulu Natal's North Coast is well known for its scuba diving sites. Day trips into Hluhluwe Mfolozi National Park as well as various other outdoor and adventure pursuits are easily accessible.
If you are looking for a stylish location where you can be at one with nature, Zimbali accommodation is for you.
