SHONGWENI

AFRICAN ADVENTURE WITHIN CITY LIMITS AT SHONGWENI DAM

Escape into the African bush within 30 minutes of the waves of the Indian Ocean and the vibrant heart of one of the world’s fastest-growing cities. Discover Shongweni Dam and Game Reserve, a slice of Africa on Durban’s doorstep, its lofty sandstone cliffs shutting out the hustle and bustle of the metropolis.

One of Msinsi’s most varied game reserves, Shongweni occupies 1700 hectares in a valley where the uMlazi, uGede and Sterkspruit Rivers meet. You’ll soon relax here with game viewing and birding along the river banks, especially if you meet the legendary white rhino in the grasslands or when you marvel at the stately giraffe.

Fishing enthusiasts find special inspiration in seeking out a favourite spot with a view of the iconic Shongweni Hill, while canoeing fans have up to 51 hectares of water to explore in the dam.
