Umzumbe River Trail

Umzumbe River Trail

Authentically Zulu

Total project value is R30-million

Location: Umzumbe Local Municipality, Along Umzumbe and Mhlabatshane Rivers. Start at Phungashe Dam and ends at Indian Ocean by Phumula Beach Hotel

Project Description

The 74 km trail will offer exquisite natural beauty and unique insights into the Zulu culture as it meanders through seven Zulu clans.

It will be a guided multi-trail (walk, hike, ride, cycle, trot, gallop) along the course of the Umzumbe & Mhlabatshane Rivers, between the dam at KwaPhungashe and the coastal village of Umzumbe.

Seven accommodation establishments and regular stops will bring sustainable tourism and economic development to every rural community along the way. Each clan will look after an accommodation establishment and their section of the trail. Whilst similar in design, the interior décor and artwork of each clan is unique. Cuisine and evening entertainment will also be unique to each of the clans.

Technical and financial details of the components of the project are available on request.
