Set amongst thicket and beside a picturesque valley, the suburb of Assagay lies to the west of Durban in the KwaZulu-Natal Province. Assagay’s lucrative housing market consists mostly of gated communities with a sprinkling of farms, old colonial buildings and equestrian centres popular with the horse set.
Assagay is 30km from Durban’s city centre and beaches, the main highway running through the southern end of the suburb.
The climate in the area is subtropical with high temperatures and humidity, however, Assagay’s elevated position renders somewhat cooler and less humid conditions.
Many equestrian facilities such as the South African Jockey Academy and the Durban Shongweni Club are nearby while some estates offer country living alongside acres of paddocks.
