Just 20 minutes’ drive from Durban and 65 kilometres from the airport, Zimbali is 925 acres of tropical coastal estate that manages to combine a residential and resort estate – the Zimbali Coastal Forest Estate and the Zimbali Golf Course Estate – in a tropical coastal setting on the north coast of KwaZulu Natal.

The Resort is located in one of South Africa’s prime coastal Nature Reserves where life is tranquil and definitely not in the fast lane!

The breathtaking natural beauty of sub-tropical Zimbali reaches into the heartland of KwaZulu-Natal from an unspoiled, 3.5km stretch of rugged coastline.

A place to enjoy bird watching and encounter over 200 species of birds, and indigenous wild life with shy blue duiker and families of bushbuck wandering through. The features inside this resort are endless – play golf on the private championship signature five-star golf course. Stay at two world-class hotels, Fairmont Zimbali Lodge and Fairmont Zimbali Resort and dine at any one of nine restaurants. A place where relaxation is key at the tranquil Willow Stream Spa or the collection of beach view rim flow pools at ‘Valley of the Pools’.
