Xaxaza Caravan Park
Xaxaza Park is situated in the beautiful, tranquil, park-like village of Mtunzini on the KwaZulu-Natal North Coast. Mtunzini means "Place of Shade" in isiZulu. We are far away from the city lights, so if it is peace, beauty, eco-tourism and an escape from the rat race you are looking for, Mtunzini is the place for your next holiday.
We offer two varieties of on-site accommodation to suit various needs. We have five Wooden Cottages and twelve Cabin Vans:
The quaint wooden cottages have either two or three bedrooms, a bathroom and a living area/kitchen. Each cottage also has a good size verandah with a braai area. The cottages are fully equipped, so all you need to bring is your towels, personal items plus your food and drink. Each cottage also has a TV with a dish but visitors have to bring their own decoder and sim card. Our Cabin vans are basically caravans on site with a log cabin in place of the tent. They are equipped with pots, pans, cutlery and crockery a stove and fridge but visitors have to bring their own bedding and towels. They do not have a bathroom attached and visitors have to make use of the main ablution block. Visitors using the Cabin Vans get to experience a true camping holiday.
Our caravan and camping sites are shady and level. If you want a more luxurious camping holiday, Xaxaza has 13 sites with private bathroom/kitchenettes. Park your caravan directly adjacent to your own private ablution facilities, sit back and enjoy camping at its very best.
Xaxaza has a swimming pool, TV lounge, trampolines, putt putt, children's play area and an enclosed games room with Table tennis, darts and snooker. There is also a laundry on site and our ablutions are kept spotlessly clean.
We are 4km from the beach and lagoon which are within the Umlalazi Nature Reserve controlled by Ezemvelo KwaZulu-Natal Wildlife. The sandy beach stretches for miles and is breathtaking, especially when viewed from the high dunes. This is a fisherman's paradise as there are no rocks to snare your fishing line. There are marked walks along the beach and through the natural bush of the nature reserve, which are a must for anyone keen on nature.
Mtunzini is known for its abundant bird life. The rare Palmnut Vulture can be readily seen nesting on the tops of the Raphia Palms. Other rare birds which can be found in or nearby Mtunzini are the Mangrove Kingfisher, Trumpeter Hornbill, White-eared Barbet and the Woolly-neck Stork. There are bird guides available and a trip to the nearby Ngoya Forest, with a possibility of siting the rare and unique to the area, Green Barbet, is a must for anyone interested in birding. The Mangrove Swamps and groves of Raphia Palms are added attractions. While visiting Mtunzini, plan a day trip to the famous and spectacular Imfolozi/Hluhluwe Game reserve which is only VA hours drive away.
Mtunzini is a quiet little village but we do have a Spar, Chemist, Bottle Store, Doctor, and a few other shops. We also have three very highly rated restaurants and our Country Club welcomes visitors. The golf course is very popular and quite challenging. There is also a bowling green and a squash court, horse riding is also available.
