The vast and exciting KZN South Coast hinterland is just waiting to be explored, and South Coast Tourism & Investment Enterprise (SCTIE) is making it more accessible with the establishment of a new rural tourism route. In May, the Emalangeni Experience was officially launched, extending the region’s rural tourism footprint and unique experiences.

 

“Emalangeni is a scenic rural area near Pennington in Umdoni which is home to beautiful accommodation sites and exquisite views,” commented Deborah Ludick Acting CEO of SCTIE. “By establishing this route, we’re connecting the popular tourist town of Pennington with this rural setting, opening up Emalangeni to a new market. The route gives visitors a more authentic experience of the region through cultural engagements, while supporting entrepreneurs and local job creations.”

 

Attending the launch were local media representatives who enjoyed a first-hand experience of the route. Starting with a tour of the historic Botha House in Pennington, guests then enjoyed a hike to Umdoni Park Nature Reserve. Putting skills were put to the test at Umdoni Country Club where they replenished with some breakfast before checking out Forest Cottage and a forest walk.

 

Heading into Emalangeni, the guests stopped at the lovely Ohlwini Garden Lodge and Phiri’s Bed ‘n Breakfast, before stopping for a delicious lunch at Buzy Corner Shisanyama. Other great tourist attractions on the route include Pennington Beach, Selborne Golf Club, Nkomba Nature Reserve, and Basset Breweries and accommodation offerings at Essential Lifestyle Country Lodge – among others.
