Durban and Zimbali Visit

In late September my husband and I took a beautiful drive from Johannesburg to Durban.  We stayed in Zimbali along the coast at the Fairmont Zimbali Resort and it was just amazing.  I really loved our drive along the South African Country side down to Durban and also seeing the beautiful mountains of the Drankensberg area. Durban was such a beautiful city and we also drove along the golden mile coast to Umhlanga and visited the famous Oyster box Hotel. It was just so delightful and I loved the red lighthouse and their beautiful art d├ęcor hotel.  

Attached some pics from our trip:

Our Beautiful Room at the Fairmont


Stunning Views to the Resort and Coast


Wonderful Breakfasts and Views


The Beautiful Lobby at the Zimbali Fairmont

I was in Love with all The Beautiful African Baskets
 
Beautiful pools
 The Sea and beach, the waves are too rough you cant swim here, but stunning to take a walk
 The Zimbali resort and grounds
 Beautiful Big Main Pool Area
 Little Cheeky Monkeys everywhere, they would come and take sugar packets from the table and food at the different restaurants.
 Had to make sure you kept your windows shut, once we saw them, we saw them almost every day  
Such Friendly Staff
