Interaction with guests
I love meeting visitors to Zinkwazi. However I have found that guests are keen to spend their time on the beach and at the lagoon so I prefer to call and see what time they like to see me. Our competent caretaker speaks English and lives on the premises and can answer most queries raised. My phone is always home so I can be reached at any time.

About the neighbourhood
The area is known for its pristine coast and unspoilt indigenous dune forest. The main beach where the Zinkwazi river opens into the sea is safe for swimming and boating. Surfing kayaking and canoeing are popular and safe. The beauty of this particular beach is that one can settle down at the main beach on the stretch of clean sand between the river and the ocean and be within 15 paces of family enjoying river activities while keeping an eye on those in the surf or on the rock shelf where st low tide a wonderland of crustacean life is trapped in rock pools
