About Duikerfontein Bed & Breakfast
Mike and Jenny Barber invite you to stay in their home away from home set in peaceful surroundings in central Durban North. We have five air-conditioned rooms each with showers en suite, DSTV, bar fridge and tea/coffee facilities. Secure parking; swimming pool and braai facilities are available for guests.
Two of the rooms in an outside cottage open onto a common patio. They have open plan kitchenettes built in for self-catering purposes.
The remaining rooms in a wing of the main house have their own entrances and can be combined into a family suite. They have access to a patio next to the pool.
There is a choice between full English or Continental breakfast and self catering facilities are provided as an option in two rooms.
You will find us on the M12, which is also a bus route to the City and Umhlanga Rocks, within easy distance of all facilities. A varied selection of restaurants and takeaways are in the immediate area.
For business we are 10 minutes from Umhlanga and La Lucia Ridge, the Durban International Conference Centre and the City Centre and less than half an hour from Durban International Airport.
For Leisure we are conveniently close to the Gateway Theatre of Shopping with its cinema complex, climbing wall, wave pool and entertainment area as well as the Suncoast or Sibaya casinos. As for the famed KwaZulu Natal Beaches we have Umhlanga or the Golden Mile on our doorstep with Umdloti and Ballito a short drive away.
For the nature lover there are trails at the Hawaan Lagoon at Umhlanga or the Virginia Bush Nature Reserve within walking distance as well as an informative visit to the Natal Sharks Board. For the sports lover there are four golf courses within ten minutes with another three half an hour away. Parkhill and Northlands Bowling greens are within walking distance and a tennis club just around the corner. Kings Park Soccer Stadium, the Absa Rugby Stadium home of the Natal Sharks and Kingsmead Cricket Stadium are within ten minutes drive.
Sight Seeing Tours
Sight seeing tours can be arranged to the Umfolosi Game reserve to see one of the Big Five or a trip to one nearby can be combined with a visit to an African Cultural Village. If the timing is right why not chase the Sardines during the annual Sardine Run or catch a boat at Umhlanga and ride near the dolphins.
