Welcome to Zini River Estate

Developed to sustain a healthy lifestyle, Zini River Estate embraces and upholds the natural beauty of Mtunzini's local fauna and flora. The town of Mtunzini itself was declared a conservancy in November 1995 and in line with this drive for conservation, Zini River Estate has transformed a former sugarcane farmland into a natural living experience. This 175 hectare Estate is situated on the northern side of the town of Mtunzini. Flanked on three sides by the Umlalazi River, natural bush and the lagoon, the estate offers inspiring, wide angle views of the ocean, river and natural plant life. The diverse topography and careful positioning of individual stands has resulted in optimisation of river and sea views.


The development spans 85 hectares with the balance reserved for conservation. The estate has returned the land to its former natural beauty and splendour through rehabilitation of local flora and fauna. Bird life is particularly prolific in the area with over 300 species having been recorded. An abundance of Raffia Palms provides the habitat for the most famous of them, the rarest breeding birds of prey in South Africa, the Palm Nut Vultures, which have made Mtunzini their home.
