What’s Happening in Zimbali

Zimbali borders the very popular holiday destination Ballito, and is 20 minutes from Durban International Airport and a short 25km drive from Umhlanga Rocks.

Zimbali is home to a rich variety of local fauna and flora and several natural spring water lakes.

The animal life within Zimbali’s forests includes 85 species of bird, hosts of butterflies, a wide variety of indigenous plant life and a variety of mammals such as Bushbaby, Blue Duiker, Bush Buck, Vervet Monkey, Banded Mongoose and even Wild Pig.
