Twinstreams is situated right in the middle of an amazing dune forest nestled on the outskirts of the magnificent Mtunzini Eco-Village, along the pristine coastline of Zululand. Mangrove swamps, estuaries, long stretches of beaches, superlative birding with over 600 species and forest hikes are some of the few life-changing experiences awaiting you in this patch of paradise. Twinstreams consists of three rustic accommodations all with separate ablution blocks. The Sinkwe Centre can accommodate up to 32 guests in eight comfortable rooms each with two double bunk beds, with modest self-catering facilities, all amidst a well-lit forest. Mick’s Park has two raised sleeping lofts under a high roof and gives large groups an outdoor camping experience but in an indoor comfort zone. Up to 30 youngsters can sleep on mattresses in the loft or six guests can sleep in the two dorm rooms in either a four-bed or two-bed room. Lastly there are two new teachers’ cabins, each with two single beds, tea and coffee facilities and bedding. There is also a large wooden deck surrounded by indigenous forest, ideal for facilitators to relax on while their group is being looked after by our well-trained guides. Established in 1952 by Dr Ian Garland, Twinstreams is the oldest Environmental Education Centre in South Africa. Mainly used for environmental education, Twinstreams is also an excellent facility for large groups looking for something out of the ordinary within a special setting. The centre's accommodation and conference facilities are linked to a network of trails through coastal forests of incredible diversity and bird life, and only a short stroll away from a long stretch of deserted beach.

    North Coast (Dolphin) Backpacker Hostel Accommodation

    Fringed by green and tangled vegetation, the golden beaches of the North Coast are a sub-tropical paradise, interspersed with rows of smart and snazzy hotels and resorts. This a great family beach holiday destination - but it has a few special little treats up its sleeve. Pods of up to a couple of hundred bottlenose dolphins frolic in the back line, the surf is fantastic and the diving is great but there aren't nearly as many operators as there are on the South Coast, or at Sodwana, further north.
    And - if you're planning on spending any time at all in the sea, you should take the opportunity to visit the KZN Sharks Board. You'll get to watch a great multi-media presentation about sharks and, if you have a strong stomach, watch a shark dissection, which is part of their ongoing research. You'll learn that sharks are not just mindless predators. There's also a great shark-themed gift shop.

    The North Coast is at the southern end of Zululand and the Battlefields, and there are some interesting historical places to visit, including Stanger, or KwaDukuza, where Shaka, the first Zulu chieftain, is buried, and the ultimatum tree at Tugela Mouth, where the Zulu wars started in a rather sneaky bit of sophistry by the British colonials.
    There are lovely day walks along the coast, but it's probably not a good idea to do them alone - make it a social event and go in a big group. The birding is fabulous and there is a small game reserve.
    But probably the most popular activity is ... golf. Yup - it's a golfer's paradise with bright green golf resorts scattered all over.
