In the lush tropical setting of South Africa's KwaZulu Natal South Coast is a unique private resort called Caribbean Estates, bordered by the Indian Ocean on the East and the Umtamvuna River on the South.
Caribbean Estates is an established development with magnificent three bedroom villas available for purchase or to rent for the holiday of a lifetime. The villas are exquisitely furnished and equipped.
Facilities on the estate include a beautiful swimming pool complex, all weather floodlit tennis courts, table tennis and and a small playground for children. Bring your own boat or take advantage of the boats, jetskis and other equipment at Waterworld across the river.
Direct access to the unspoilt beach and the river is via scenic walkways through the beautiful conservation area where a huge variety of birdlife can be seen. The patient observer may even come across small buck species and Samango monkeys.
The Wild Coast Sun Hotel and Casino complex is five minutes away and offers watersports, horseriding and more. There are numerous golf courses within easy reach with restaurants of every type close by.
On the Estate itself there is a charming swimming pool complex, with two graded adult pools and a paddling pool. A Caribbean gazebo provides shade for a cool drink and there are built in braai (barbeque) facilities.
There are two floodlit all-weather tennis courts. Rackets and tennis balls are available for hire. Volley ball and table tennis facilities are also available. There is also a jungle gym and trampoline for our younger guests.
The ocean and river allows surfing, swimming, diving, snorkelling, angling, boating, etc.
The Wild Coast Casino offers horseriding on the beach and along trails with magnificent scenery. Waterworld has fabulous water sports facilities and offers regular river cruises. The 18-hole golf course is challenging and scenically breathtaking.
The KwaZulu Natal south coast is known as the Golf Coast: there are numerous courses between Caribbean Estates and Durban, from the fairly easy to the downright difficult. All welcome visitors, but bookings should be made in advance.
Located only a few kilometres from Caribbean Estates, the Umtamvuna Nature Reserve is an absolute must. Run by the KwaZulu Conservation Services, it covers some 3250 hectares and lies along 25 kilometres of the river. There are several trails for walkers of varying degrees of ease and severity.view.jpg (11050 bytes)
Apart from the myriad varieties of wild flowers and grasses (some very rare), there are numerous small mammals, including bushbabies, samango and vervet monkeys, chacma baboons, red hares, clawless otters, mongooses and spotted genets. Large nocturnal predators such as black-backed jackal and servals hunt rodents in the grasslands. Some of the buck you may see are blue duiker, oribi and bushbuck; and after dark the common duiker and reedbuck.
To quote Tony Abbott from the Reserve's publication: "The magic of hidden waterfalls, of staggeringly beautiful cliffs of curious colours and fantastic formations, the views over grassland to gorge and sea beyond, the blaze of colour as the grasslands burst into spring flowers ... a complete peace: all this and more is here to tempt you".
