More info about Mtunzini
Perched on a ridge overlooking a nature reserve and the Indian Ocean, the KwaZulu-Natal town of Mtunzini is historically in an area regarded as the traditional home of the Zulu nation, South Africa’s most populous people. It was here that many frontier wars were fought between the British and the Zulus and a battlefield route has been established in an attempt to recreate the events that raged on between 1879 and 1896.
The name Mtunzini means place of shadows and will be forever linked to hunter and ivory trader John Dunn who, being fluent in Zulu, became an advisor to the Zulu king Cetshwayo. Dunn rose in power and was unofficially treated as a Zulu chief. His settlements and constructions can still be seen in Mtunzini.
For those who love the outdoors, Mtunzini has a wealth of national parks, beaches, water-related activities, hiking trails and mountain bike routes. Yet Mtunzini is also a place to relax... Show more
About Guest Houses
For a more down to earth experience there are guest houses. Less expensive than hotels, they offer a more homey environment, as well as more privacy.

They are usually well situated with shops and places of interest nearby. Being so small it offers a much more personal and intimate attention to it’s upkeep, leaving you with a more polished and homely experience.
