    Great view on the Indian Ocean, funny open air shower and a superbe fish buffet on Saturday evening. Calming evenings in the bar in front of the open fire was very comfortable in spring season.We like to be there soon again.

    Have just returned from celebrating a family birthday at Umngazi. Having spent umpteen wonderful holidays there during the '60's and '70's, I had great expectations.

    Contact the resort for availability. I believe you can fly in from Jhb and the resort picks you up from the airport. Please arrange the details with the resort. It is a stunning place.
