Kelso Travel Guide

Kelso - Kelso is situated about 65 km south of Durban on the KZN south coast . It was named after a small town on the Tweed river in Scotland by Henry Cooke a Byrne settler in the early 1860 s. It used to serve as an important link with regard to rail transport and the sugar that was taken by ships out of the Umzinto River many years ago . Today The rail junction still exists but with very little significance these days, infact the whole rail system on the length of the whole of the South Coast has spoilt the beauty and natural resources of this wonderful coastline in my view. It would have served the community a lot more if it had been built near the road links of the the N2 freeway as the majority of the indigenous population live inland away from the coast . Kelso has a huge natural bay with stunning views of this lovely spot. To the south of the Bay is Vulamanzi point which is renowned for its point breaks amongst the surfing fraternity and considered one of the best in the world . Also the natural outcrop of rocks in the same area makes for excellent fishing , diving and snorkelling . The kite boarding in the bay is also very popular . The long stretch of beach to the north also has execellent fishing , swimming and sun bathing . The whole of Kelso is also surrounded by areas of natural ecological indgenous bush which supports many forms of birds and wild life and is very eco sensitive and should be protected . There are only two accommodation facilities at Kelso which are Vulamanzi - self catering cabins and Happy Wanderers caravan park. It has some of the best sunrises and sunsests over Kelso Bay mainly in the winter. The sardines also sometimes frequent this bay during the annual sardine run and is a spectacle on its own. I hope this gives the reader some insight into this little piece of heaven on the South Coast .
