Nature Preserve
“A grove of raphia palms beside the railway line is one of the few declared natural monuments in the country and it is the best place to spot the rare Palmnut Vulture which nests near the top of the palm. The palms were introduced to Mtunzini about 100 years ago from the swamp forests of the Kosi Bay and it's one of only six palm species indigenous to South Africa. The raphia palm can grow to a height of 25m in 25 years and its leaves are amongst the largest in the plant kingdom. There is a timber boardwalk through the swamp forest, provinding easy access to the heart of the colony of raphia palms where the prime specimens create an awesome cathedral-like effect. ”

Park
“The Umlalazi Nature Reserve makes up the northern section of the Siyaya Coastal Park - about 42 kms of unspoilt coastline, which stretches from the mouth of the Mlalazi River to the southern boundary of the Amatikulu Nature Reserve. It covers several habitats including beaches which are popular for swimming, surfing and fishing and lagoons, dune forests and grasslands. Visitors visitors can view a wide range of creatures - great and small - from the fascinating fiddler crabs and mudskippers which inhabit the mangrove swamp to a roaming herd of zebras and duikers.”

Point of Interest
“Home to the incredibly rare Palmnut Vulture, Umlalazi Nature Reserve provides restricted access to beautiful beaches and a river. Amazing birding life and small animals, numerous walks and picnic spots, beach fishing and swimming makes it a paradise for nature lovers. There is limited waterskiing and canoeing on the lagoon – keep a lookout for the occasional crocodile and sharks.”
