About Fairmont Zimbali Lodge
Meaning the ‘valley of flowers’, Zimbali Lodge is situated in the lush forest of Zimbali, five minutes away from Ballito.
With beautiful décor reminiscent in colour of an autumnal forest floor, the lodge gives guests the chance to explore the best of Durban.
Beautifully designed and adorned, the rooms boast warm wood finishes evoking the natural splendour of the forest surrounds.
Meandering forest paths take guests to the secluded beach or lakeside, with magnificent birds and butterflies en-route.
Along with relaxing at the pool area, guests can partake in a wealth of activities, including fishing, scuba diving, playing tennis and enjoying a game of golf at the well-known Zimbali Country Club.
