About Sensayuma Backpackers

Sensayuma is set at the mouth of the mighty Tugela River, where the biggest river in KwaZulu-Natal merges its waters with the warm Indian Ocean. Perched in lush dune forest high above the river we have an awe-inspiring 180-degree view across the untouched bay, out to sea and up the river into the rolling misty hills. Sensayuma is truly a hidden gem of Zululand.
