Chaka's Rock is situated in Ballito which has numerous beaches, golf courses and assorted activities with fantastic weather all year round.
There are three magnificent golf courses in the area: Zimbali (complete with a day spa) and Umhlali are less than 10 minutes drive away while Princes' Grant is 20 minutes drive but is worth the extra distance for the quality of the course and the breathtaking sea views.
There are numerous restaurants in the area, many with a strong Portuguese influence as a result of the short distance to Mozambique. Beira Alta in the new Ballito Lifestyle Center and Mo-Zam-Bik are the pick of the bunch (especially if you enjoy prawns or steak).
For a day off from the beach, Gateway Mall in Umhlanga is only 20 minutes away, while for a more culturally enriching experience the King Shaka Cultural Tourism Trail is a celebration of the life of King Shaka, the man who turned a small clan into a mighty Zulu Nation.
There are also numerous arts and crafts markets less than 10 minutes drive from the flat including the Ballito Pottery Gallery and the Footprints Gallery.
For the more adventurous there are assorted activities such as microlight flights, deep sea fishing, quad biking and horse riding all near by. Contact details for all of these activities plus a range of others are available on request.
uShaka Marine World in Durban, the largest aquarium in the Southern Hemisphere, is well worth a visit as is Crocodile Creek in Ballito.
