Mtunzini Longweekend 2 – 5 April 2021

Umlalazi is a reserve next to Mtunzini on the KZN north coast. This will be our base camp for the weekend. The reserve has much to offer – a beach, lagoon where one can kayak and fish, board walks through the mangrove forests, hiking trails etc. There are spectacular mountain bike trails in the vicinity. Mtunzini area is a birding paradise, of which one of the highlights is the palm nut vulture with the Raphia palm forest being it’s home. There is a boardwalk through the Raphia forest which is adjacent to the reserve and is a short but spectacular walk, and maybe one is fortunate enough to see a Palm Nut Vulture.
One of the days we will take a day driving trip through the Ongoye forest, a landscape with unique vegetation type which is a mix of scarp forest and grasslands. This forest is also the home of the Green Barbet (among many other rare birds) which is endemic to this forest.
The second day we will take a scenic drive though the eShowe surroundings with a variety of interests, from historical places, different types of forest areas, board walks etc.

Mtunzini area and town has a few restaurants and coffee shops should one wish to explore these options. The reserve gate only closes at night which affords one a bit more flexibility to explore a bit more than only the campsite.

We have made a provisional booking in the Inkwazi Campsite for 10 camp sites (60 people) and need to pay the camping fees by 10 February.

Members need to pay kznwildlife directly for their camping fees: please use the Reference Number for the provisional booking when making payment, then send your proof of payment to Gerhard van Rooyen. Please note that your spot is only confirmed once payment with correct reference is made.

R120/person/night – we booked from 2 April – 5 April 2021. 3 nights.
Should you wish to arrive earlier/stay later please let me know so that I can arrange, or you can arrange directly with the central reservations office.

*Please note that the Ongoye forest is a very narrow track and there are places where one would have to get “soft” branches against the vehicle, however we will take equipment along to cut back larger branches that may cause damage to vehicles. It is an enjoyable, and somewhat challenging track to drive. Driving on this day is of course not mandatory to participate in the weekend, you can hop in someone else’s car as well
