Zimbali Beach Estate- Durban North, South Africa (8990)

Zimbali, Kwa Zulu Natal

The prestigious and exclusive Zimbali Beach Estate, located on the east coast of South Africa, is nestled between a shimmering sea and a forest reserve. The exquisite natural beauty of this eco-estate development is an ideal setting for the Estate’s Indonesian-inspired architecture. Your immaculately furnished and equipped villa is both an elegant refuge and showcase of Nature’s majesty: you may encounter deer, monkeys and prolific bird-life on your doorstep, or view ocean-dwelling dolphins and whales from your balcony. There are so many ways for you to explore this magnificent Estate, whether you avail yourself of its spectacular walks and running trails, horseback riding along the shoreline, or swim and collect shells along the 3-kilometer stretch of pristine sandy beach, which also features Zimbali swimming pools. And those with more sporting interests can tee-off on the 18-hole Tom Weiskopf-designed golf course. Remember also to explore the local region and its rich heritage of the KwaZulu-Natal province—the town of Ballito is a mere beach walk away. One of the last remaining areas of natural coastal forest in South Africa, a strict conservation policy was implemented to harness the heritage of this area. Endowed with lush vegetation and an abundance of indigenous wildlife, Zimbali Coastal Resort is situated on a pristine stretch of KwaZulu-Natal’s Dolphin Coast. The reserve is particularly famous for its hundreds of endangered black rhino and the largest population of white rhino in the world.
