Zimbali Coastal Resort – Experience Freedom in Nature

Zimbali is a coastal resort near Umhlanga Rocks, on the North Coast of ZwaZulu Natal. Zimbali Coastal Resort is often referred to as an oasis, because of its natural beauty and the tranquil lifestyle. The serenity of the shaded forest foot paths, the calm of the ocean, and the relaxing activities are irresistible.

Many fast paced city dwellers have relocated to Zimbali, semi permanent or permanently, to enjoy a life filled with golf, horse riding, and long walks along the beach. Bird watching, tennis, or waiting in the forest to catch a fleeting glimpse of an exquisite butterfly, becomes part of their lives.

Designing the 18 hole golf course on the Zimbali Country Club
grounds,
proved to be a hair raising challenge to golf course designer, Tom
Weiskopf.
Zimbali is extremely conservation conscious and required a golf
course
that is ecologically sound. As a result, the golf course maximizes the
changing terrain, and offers any level of golfer, a challenging yet
scenic
course, set amongst a magnificent landscape. The Zimbali Country Club
is a
recipient of the Complete Golfer 5 Star course rating, ranked by Golf
Digest
as one of the top twenty golf courses in South Africa, and one of the
five
finest golfing experiences. Based on the course, clubhouse facilities
and
experience, Zimbali Country Club and Golf Course received the Complete
Golfers 5 Star Gold Experience Award. With all this said, there should
be
no doubt in any golfers mind, that golfing in Zimbali, is a memorable
event.

The Valley of Pools is another attraction in Zimbali that is
extremely
popular. Amazing views of the ocean is visible from these freshwater
pools,
with a coffee shop for the hungry or thirsty. Driving around the
Zimbali
Coastal Resort estate in the early mornings or late evenings, might
give you
the opportunity to spot a few animals such as duikers or bush buck. Or
even
take a seat on the sand, and watch for playful dolphins to glide
by.
