Zimbali Coastal Resort is one of the top estates within South Africa. Nestled along the gorgeous coast line of Ballito, Zimbali has lots to offer. The championship golf course within the estate bring many golfers from far and wide, hoping to run this gauntlet successfully. The majestic spa also located within the estate forces one to spoil themselves. Whilst mum is indulging at the spa and dad is on the golf course, the kids can be entertained at the Bush Buck Club which offers loads of activities for the little ones. Zimbali is definitely a destination you should visit at least once in your life time.

The Valley of the pools is a popular spot on the Estate because of its bar, coffee shop and variety of pools (adult pools, kiddies pools and heated pools). Hours can be lost enjoying the beauty of the unspoilt Zimbali beach. Especially when there is so much to do; surfing, kite-surfing, fishing, kayaking or just enjoying a picnic while watching dolphins just off the breakers.

Imagine a place where endless golden beaches divide the warm Indian Ocean and the lush coastal vegetation, a place where schools of dolphins frolic in the waves and gentle whale sharks cruise lazily by, a place where shy blue duiker and families of bush buck wander through indigenous gardens, a place with two private championship signature golf courses in your immediate back-yard, a place with world-class hotels with rim flow pools which captivate your imagination and delight your senses. Welcome to paradise. Welcome to Zimbali.
Developed as one of the finest coastal residential and resort estates in Southern Africa, Zimbali exists as an oasis of stylish living. Zimbali's appeal is that residents and guests create new living experiences for themselves within a naturally beautiful environment.
There is a wonderful mix of tranquillity, sophisticated entertaining, sensual relaxation, opportunities to take long walks on empty beaches or along shaded forest footpaths, catch glimpses of exquisite butterflies, watch mischievous monkeys at play or resident bushbuck grazing, ride horses, play tennis or engage in a challenging round of golf.
This casual coastal lifestyle is what makes Zimbali so impressionable.

It is tranquil, yet exciting at the same time. There are lots of shopping centres and clean beaches. There is so much to do and see. Enjoy the stunning views from where you are staying.
