More info about Amanzimtoti

Amanzimtoti is located on the south coast of Durban, Kwazulu-Natal and is a very popular holiday destination for the whole family. According to legend Amanzimtoti got its name from the Zulu King Shaka while he was leading his army down the river to attack the Pondos in 1828. He stopped at the river to have a drink water and proclaimed that the water was sweet; and so the river became known as Amanzimtoti which means Sweet Water.

Amanzimtoti was once known as a town to pass through to get somewhere else, but people became fascinated with the town and would stop and stay because of its peacefulness and beauty. It is now a favourite place for many to escape from the hustle and bustle of life.

 

Things to do

 

Amanzimtoti may be a little town, but boy is there plenty to do. Being a beach town, the number one fave activity is fun in the sun; but it's not all there is on offer!

Amanzimtoti beaches are very popular whilst on vacation. There are many restaurants and pubs to grab a bite at, and plenty of beach activities for the kids during the peak season. There are also numerous watersports; with snorkling and bodyboarding being favourites. The wide stretches of beach are also perfect to just relax on - whether you're sunbathing, reading or enjoying a picnic. Some of the beaches to visit include Main beachBaggies Beach and Pipeline Beach.

For a cooler activity, why not try your hand at ice skating. The Galleria Ice Rink, located in the Galleria Mall, offers skate rental for those without their own blades, and it's a fun activity for the whole family to enjoy.

Situated on Amanzimtoti main beach is the adrenaline fuelled Splash Water World. This fun filled water park is suitable for the whole family and caters for the more adventurous and kids alike.

If water isn't your thing then head over to Spin Zone Bumper Cars. With specially designed bumper cars to create an exhilarating experience, it is the perfect place to go for some good fun. If you like speed and competition then you must go down to Galleria Mall and race your family and friends at the Epic Karting track. For the more relaxed, but still competitive people, go play some tenpin bowling at Super Bowls. They offer a glow in the dark evening option with a variety different size and weight balls

For something different and exciting, try Glow Mini Golf. They have a 9 hole or 18 hole mini golf course with glow in the dark golf balls. You are bound to have many laughs while playing.

For those keen for a more serious round of golf (with spectacular views) then you'll be pleased to know Amanzimtoti has an excellent 18 hole Golf Course located right next to the beach.

Amanzimtoti Bird Sanctuary is well worth a visit. The stunning sanctuary is home to as many as 150 bird species, most who are not shy about being seen. There are also many truly beautiful places to have picnics in the sanctuary. Nature lovers should also plan to visit Ilanda Wilds Nature Reserve located along the Amanzimtoti river. You'll find just over 120 tree and shrub species and 300 different animal species on this small, yet gorgeous reserve.
