About Nkawu Cottage
Having left Belgium 20 years ago, my husband and I have finally found the peace and tranquility we were looking for! After moving from place to place, from country to country, we landed in Mtunzini, which means place in the shade in Zulu.
How fortunate we were, this little town, on the North coast, has its own nature reserve; Umlalazi Nature Reserve, a magnificent lagoon, breathtaking dunes and an endless beach 2.3 km exactly from our cottage. A Spar, shops around the corner, a pizzeria and a few restaurants make it all convenient.

Nkawu Cottage is definitely ideally situated to enjoy an amazing stay. After discovering Zululand, you will dream of its green beauty, blue ocean and feel enriched with diverse memorable experiences. Nkawu Cottage (Vervet monkey in Zulu), is part of our 4000m² property.

Attractions and Activities
Situated 135km from Durban, our cottage is an hour away from the renowned big five Hlululuwe / Umfolozi Park, and a further half an hour drive is the St Lucia Wetland Park, on the magnificent Maputaland Coast - a World Heritage Site, where scuba diving is a must.
On a cloudy day, an hours drive away is the Gateway Shopping Centre where kids can enjoy the skateboard park and wave center, climb the wall or watch a movie.
We really enjoyed decorating our cottage; we used our creativity and professional skills (we are paint technique specialists) to make it a very special place we believe it is more than just a self catering cottage.
