KwaZulu-Natal

Amanzimtoti lies just south of Durban. It is said that the Manzimtoti River, which flows through the town, was named by none other than the great Shaka. Amanzimtoti is often referred to as 'Toti'.

Amanzimtoti is both a popular tourist destination as well as a residential area. Many people live there and work in Durban or in the industrial areas of Isipingo and Prospecton.

A lot of commercial development is currently happening, mostly on the inland side of the N2 highway.

The beaches are popular for swimming, surfing and fishing. There is also plenty of space for picnics and social games of sport such as volleyball.
