Situated only twenty minutes north of Durban is the 925 hectare tropical coastal estate of Zimbali. Nestled between pristine beaches and caostal forest Zimbali is a nature lovers paradise providing visitors with a perfect balance between nature and luxurious comfort. Zimbali manages to maintain this balance through a prescribed design philosophy, which ensures that the developments don't affect the natural surroundings in too much of a destructive manner.

Zimbali gets its name from the Zulu language, and roughly translated means "Valley of Flowers", an accurate description of this beautiful coastal region, consisting of lush sub tropical vegetation, flourishing with wildlife. Nature trails through the indigenous coastal forest highlight the strict conservation program that has been introduced there. The area is home to a variety of species which include bushbuck, monkies, bush babies, and blue duiker which often make their way onto the golf course. Zimbali is also a bird watcher's delight with over two hundred species frequenting the forests and surrounds.

The full length of the eastern border is flanked by a pristine three kilometer stretch of beach making it the ideal location for scenic horse rides, swimming, fishing, and dolphin and whale watching. Other activities in and around Zimbali include helicopter and microlight flights, mountain biking and quad biking,scuba diving and kite surfing. The magnificent eighteen hole golf course at the Zimbali Country Club was designed by former British and SA Open championship winner Tom Wieskopf, and proves to be a decent challenge to golfers of any handicap. The course features rolling wetlands and coastal forest, leading golfers on a tough walk but fortunately the use of golf carts are compulsory. Zimbali is also closely situated to the headquarters of the Natal Sharks Board, which provide visitors with informative tours and displays throughout the year. For keen shoppers, Gateway shopping centre is also nearby, with its hundreds of stores and entertainment facilities.
