ABOUT THE AREA
Just south of Margate lies Marina Beach, between the villages of San Lameer and Southbroom, an easy hour and a half’s drive from Durban. Close to the Mpenjati River mouth and lagoon, it is a long sandy beach with its own tidal pool and a well deserved blue flag status.
Marina Beach has often been called the “Honolulu of the South Coast” and it isn’t hard to imagine why. The subtropical climate easily combines with a beach that is lovely, sandy and clean, whilst the little village, not much more than a superette, Post Office, bottle store and petrol station, lies next door to the Mpenjati Nature Reserve that adds to the lush vegetation.
Together with the Trafalgar Marine Reserve, it provides a calm enclave on what can sometimes be a rather busy coastline. This little 60 hectare reserve interlinks wetlands, grasslands and dune forest that provide ample opportunity to swim, hike and fish.
There is a selection of pretty picnic sites on each bank of the Mpenjati River and the Ipithi Trail, on the south bank, is a short walk that normally guarantees sightings of the blue, red and grey duiker, whilst the Yengele trail on the north bank sends its way through the largest dune forests on the KwaZulu Natal coastline.
Rough and ready, smart and sophisticated, rural and rustic: there’s no doubt that KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) is eclectic. It’s a region where glassy malls touch shabby suburbs, and action-packed adventurers ooze adrenaline while laid-back beach bods drip with suntan lotion. Mountainscapes contrast with flat, dry savannahs, while the towns’ central streets, teeming with African life, markets and noise, are in stark contrast to the sedate tribal settlements in rural areas. Here, too, is traditional Zululand, whose people are fiercely proud of their culture.
Throw in the wildlife – the Big Five (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino) and rare marine species – the historic intrigue of the Battlefields, fabulous hiking opportunities, and the sand, sea and surf of coastal resort towns, and you get a tantalising taste of local heritage and authentic African highlights that should be on every ‘must-do’ list.
