The bustling town of Richards Bay offers some of the most spectacular scenery and unspoilt beaches, not to mention its rich history that fills this harbour town with a charming character.
Richards Bay has some of the best beaches in the country and you can easily spend a whole day lounging on the white sand, while dipping in and out of the warm, blue ocean. The mini resorts of Naval Island, Pelican Island and the Tuzi Gazi Waterfront offer great opportunities for canoeing, angling, jet-skiing and sailing. The mountainous landscapes and riveting scenery can be explored via horseback, mountain biking, helicopter flights and microlight flights.
For history enthusiasts, Zululand portrays the traditional tribal ways of life that have been preserved in the rural countryside, where traditional kraals (villages) such as Shakaland, are open to the public year-round. Other attractions not to be missed include Lake Mzingazi and the Richards Bay Game Reserve, where you’ll find an abundance of birdlife and hippos splashing around. Whales and dolphins can be spotted in the bay during summer time.
Regardless if you’re travelling for business or pleasure, the laid-back culture and tranquil surroundings will make you feel right at home in this city.
