KwaZulu Natal DestinationsZinkwazi, Dolphin Coast

Zinkwazi, which takes its name from the Zulu word for white-headed fish eagle, is a small village with an unexploited 7 kilometre lagoon that lies amongst lush sub-tropical vegetation that is typical of the north coast of KwaZulu Natal.

Just 85 kilometres from Durban, on the N2 past Stanger, Zinkwazi is well known for its incredible bird life and its proximity to the Zululand Birding Route - a conservation project that promotes birding tourism by offering up-to-date information, local guides, brochures and itineraries for birders in an area where some 600 species have been recorded.

The lagoon of Zinkwazi opens on to a safe, protected beach that is just one of several beaches along this coast that form part of a nature conservancy, including lush indigenous forests, tropical palms and endless beaches both north and south of this pretty little village.

Zinkwazi provides ferry rides along the lagoon, used for upriver bird spotting, wine tasting or simply to experience the relaxation of being on water.

Golf enthusiasts have a number of courses to choose from including the Zimbali golf course, the Durban Country Club, Umhlali Country Club and Mount Edgecombe - all world class courses. Zinkwazi also lies in the heart of the King Shaka Route and is close to many an historical Anglo-Zulu battlefield.
