a small coastal town that is situated almost exactly halfway along KwaZulu-Natal's
coastline in South Africa approximately 140Km north of Durban. The name
is an isiZulu meaning place in the shade. After the breakup of the
Zulu kingdom after the Anglo-Zulu War, Sir Garnet Wolseley created 13 'kinglets'
- with two strategically located as buffer zones between Port Natal and
Zululand. One of these kinglets was John Dunn who used Mtunzini as his
In 1948, 9 square kilometres

known as the Umlalazi Nature Reserve. This area falls under the protection

Umlalazi Lagoon is a popular tourist attraction for watersports enthusiasts
and fisherman alike. Recreational and commercial ski-boat boat fisherman
also launch their boats in the lagoon and they then head for the Indian
Ocean via the mouth of the Umlalazi River. Mtunzini is a bird watchers
paradise and is renowned as one of the few places where South Africa's
rarest bird of prey, the Palm Nut Vulture, is found. These birds feed on
the fruit of the Rafia Palm which produces its fruit once every twenty
years before dying. Visitors can enjoy a walk through the lush vegetation
at the Rafia Palm Monument, which features a raised boardwalk that meanders
through to the magnificent palms.
Mtunzini boasts, among other
attractions, pristeen beaches, a 9 hole golf course at the Mtunzini Country
Club, the Tradewinds Hotel, numerous Bed-and-Breakfast establishments as
well as a range of camping, caravanning and other self contained holiday
accommodations. Be warned, the beach is NOT protected by shark nets due
to Mtunzini's proximity to a shark breeding ground populated by Zambezi
Sharks as well as many others. This fact notwithstanding, the waves at
Mtunzini are described by surfers as being some of the better ones to surf
on the North Coast. In 2002 Mtunzini became a landing point for the
SAFE state of the art Optical fiber Submarine communications cable, linking
Melkbosstrand to the West with Saint Paul (Réunion), Baie Jacotet
(Mauritius), Cochin (India) and Penang (Malaysia).
