Lying just 15 minutes from Durban CBD, the beautiful, much sought after leafy-green KwaZulu Natal suburb of Westville is the first western borough of "Greater Durban". Westville was named after Sir Martin West, Lieutenant-Governor of Natal in the mid-19th Century, whose farm was later transformed into the up-market KZN Westville residential area, which has recently become a thriving business centre, with prestigious office parks springing up and attracting major companies and professional firms to Westville.
Right in the middle of the 'country-like' atmosphere of Westville, nature lovers and the outdoor adventurer are catered for, as the Westville Palmiet Nature Reserve spans the length of Westville valley, and has numerous trails which lead hikers to various interesting sites, which include waterfalls, cliffs, a grassy mountain ridge and picnic sites. 200 years ago the Westville Palmiet Nature Reserve was known as a wild and untamed place, full of giant 20 foot (6m) pythons, leopards and lions. Back then it was cultivated with bananas, pineapples, mangoes and pawpaws, and teeming with kingfishers and owls. Many of the same types of birds still circle the sky over this tranquil Westville valley, making this Westville nature reserve a bird watchers paradise. Today, the Westville Palmiet Nature Reserve lying In the midst of the bustling KwaZulu Natal suburb of Westville remains as mysterious as it was, (sans the exotic wildlife) - a peaceful, quiet place with a meandering river running through it.

Guests visit to Westville
Being from up-country, and needing Westville accommodation, I was on the lookout for a Bed and Breakfast in Westville (a suburb of Durban, KwaZulu Natal),
We were accommodated at Ntengu Lodge, the most exquisite Guest House in Westville. Ntengu Lodge is a 5 star luxury guest house perched on the edge of a ravine on the Westville Palmiet Nature Reserve - a peaceful, quiet place teeming with abundant bird life, and a meandering river running through it.
In the middle of the busy Westville suburb, we felt like we were on Safari, enjoying stunning views of the Westville Palmiet Nature Reserve from the deck while we sipped cocktails at days end.
Our Ntengu Lodge hosts happily filled us in on the history of Westville. Not only has it become a thriving business center, but it also sports the University of KwaZulu-Natal. Then there's the fact that Westville accommodation is on the route of the world-famous Comrades Marathon, which takes place annually between Durban and Pietermaritzburg - Bed and Breakfasts in Westville are very popular during this time, and should be booked way in advance. Westville Self Catering accommodation will be just as popular.
Just minutes away lies the Westville Pavilion Shopping Center, where the girls took the opportunity to shop and eat a sumptuous meal in one of the 40 restaurants on offer, while the guys escaped to the nearby Westville Driving Range.
On a day off, we took the opportunity to drive to the Durban beach-front, although once there, we were in no hurry to stay, preferring to head North to quaint places like Hillcrest, Botha's Hill and Drummond.
Discovering Westville and the surrounding areas was an unexpected delight, and I plan to return to Westville, only this time I may look at renting a Self Catering unit, and bring the whole family with.
Thank you Andrew and the team at Ntengu Lodge, and special thanks to 'the barefoot chef' for the scrumptious treats.
PS. The Westville Hotel looked pretty good, and may be worth a consideration
