Dates for 2018 to be confirmed! The annual Litchi Festival is set to rock the spectacular Dolphin Coast of KwaZulu-Natal. Although the focus here is often on the sun, sea, and sand, this festival is all about fun and celebrating the fresh flavours of the delicious litchi fruit.

Salt Rock, just north of Ballito, is the host area of this exciting event.

Picking will begin on 14 December 2017, and will only end when there are no more litchis left to pick. However, the festival will be closed on 25 December and 1 January. Visitors can enjoy a tractor ride into the scenic orchards to pick the litchis, while sampling as many as they can possibly fit in!

Enjoy the picturesque setting as you indulge in more of these sweet treats at an inviting picnic spot on the banks of the dam. Refreshments are sold on site for your convenience (including Halal food), but visitors should bring their own blankets or towels on which to sit.

The tractor trips take place every 15 minutes, or so. The Litchi Festival is based at the farm just passed The Flag Animal Farm, and not at the litchi orchards themselves. Only cash is accepted as there are no card facilities at the festival.

This is such a popular event that it has been held every year since 2006. Donít miss out on the fun, festivity and fabulous food, all to be found along the gorgeous eastern coastline of South Africa. Salt Rock is less than an hour away from Durban and its King Shaka International Airport.

VENUE: On a Farm just PAST The Animal Flag Farm, Salt Rock, Umhlali Area, Dolphin Coast
