Zimbali Walkways, Zimbali Estate, Dolphin Coast, KwaZulu-Natal
What makes Zimbali Estate so special is that a good portion of its 925 acreage is populated by lush indigenous Coastal Forest. The 50-hectare reserve within the estate, including all dunes within this area, have been proclaimed a natural conservation site, and are home to a rich heritage of local fauna and flora. No less than 85 bird species have been identified in the area, and animal species include a variety of buck, banded mongoose and wild pig. Located less than half an hour’s drive north of Durban, Zimbali combines upmarket residential areas with unspoiled ocean-front holiday and conference accommodation. Limited pathways and wooden viewing decks meandering through these areas allow residents and visitors to immerse themselves in the untamed natural surrounds.
