Uvongo on the South Coast of KwaZulu Natal, is a bustling seaside holiday town situated at the mouth of the Ivunga River, where a magnificent waterfall plummets 23m down into the deepest lagoon in the country. Large rock escarpments covered with beautiful, dense foliage shelter Uvongo Beach, where visitors can swim, surf and snorkel in the warm South Coast Indian Ocean waters. For the adventurous, the caves of the Uvongo Lagoon offer a popular destination for divers. However, this South Coast dive site is not recommended for the faint hearted, as it's very dark, underwater visibility is poor, and torches are required.

Due to the water in the Uvongo Lagoon consisting of a combination of fresh water from the river and sea water, an unusual variety of marine life can be seen there. Most commonly sighted in the underwater caves are juvenile Rock Salmon, fresh water Congo Eels and Moonies. Diving in the Uvongo Lagoon is a pleasant eye-opener

Hire a pedal boat and explore the Uvongo River, or take a footpath and amble alongside the river to the Uvongo River Nature Reserve which incorporates a well-conserved coastal forest with a wide diversity of trees, shrubs, ferns, orchids and maritime bird life.

Plan a visit to the Uvongo Bird Park. This amazing South Coast bird park offers walk-through aviaries, where a diversity of vibrant bird life can be discovered. Enjoy tea in the garden, while the children entertain themselves in the play-park.

Uvongo is also known as an anglers paradise, especially during the annual 'Sardine Run', when the South Coast comes to life with an energetic buzz of fishermen and locals as the tiny silver fish beach. Considered to be the greatest shoal on earth, these billions of fish bring with them numerous larger game fish, dolphins, sharks, seals, whales and a variety of birdlife seeking an easy meal, making Uvongo's annual ocean extravaganza undoubtedly one of the most spectacular South Coast marine events. 

The KZN South Coast is also known as the 'Golf Coast', as there are eleven KwaZulu Natal, South Coast Golf Courses for visitors to enjoy, all linked by a superb road network within easy reach of each other, and with well appointed golf clubhouses and a friendly 19th hole!
