The closest backpackers is only 5km away in the hamlet of Darnell. Zinkwazi has many attractions nearby , why not try a visit to the Harold Johnson Nature Reserve just north of Ballito. The reserve offers a great variety of game and birdlife and contains two national monuments worth seeing, particularly Fort Pearson, which was built in 1878 and sits on a bluff overlooking the pont crossing on the Tugela River.

In fact, the entire reserve used to function as a British military camp. The beautiful 104 hectare reserve offers picnic and braai facilities and sightings of zebra, duiker, bushbuck and crocs.
If you're after bigger game, hunt down the Big Five in the Imfolozi Reserve which is only an hour and a half's drive from Darnall.
