Amanzimtoti is located on the south coast of Durban, Kwazulu-Natal and is a very popular holiday destination for the whole family. According to legend Amanzimtoti got its name from the Zulu King Shaka while he was leading his army down the river to attack the Pondos in 1828. He stopped at the river to have a drink water and proclaimed that the water was sweet; and so the river became known as Amanzimtoti which means Sweet Water.

Amanzimtoti was once known as a town to pass through to get somewhere else, but people became fascinated with the town and would stop and stay because of its peacefulness and beauty. It is now a favourite place for many to escape from the hustle and bustle of life.

They offer a glow in the dark evening option with a variety different size and weight balls

For something different and exciting, try Glow Mini Golf. They have a 9 hole or 18 hole mini golf course with glow in the dark golf balls. You are bound to have many laughs while playing.

For those keen for a more serious round of golf (with spectacular views) then you'll be pleased to know Amanzimtoti has an excellent 18 hole Golf Course located right next to the beach.

Amanzimtoti Bird Sanctuary is well worth a visit. The stunning sanctuary is home to as many as 150 bird species, most who are not shy about being seen. There are also many truly beautiful places to have picnics in the sanctuary. Nature lovers should also plan to visit Ilanda Wilds Nature Reserve located along the Amanzimtoti river.
