This self drive golf holiday includes a 4 night stay at the picture-perfect Zimbali Golf Resort, located in Ballito nr. Durban.A sanctuary unlike any other in South Africa, this charming and unspoiled region is a nature lovers wonderland. Dappled shadows from the lush vegetation and cool breezes from the Indian Ocean leave their mark on your soul. Endless beaches and clear skies invite you to relax and dream.Zimbali truly is the ideal venue for the discerning golfer who would like to, not only test his/her abilities on some of the finest golf courses in Africa, but who would also like to do so in style.
Arrive at King Shaka International, Durban. Grab your luggage and head to Avis where you’ll collect your hired vehicle.
Drive the short distance to Zimbali Resort Hotel, located in the seaside town of Ballito. Spend the remainder of the day at leisure.
Enjoy breakfast at the hotel before teeing off at Zimbali Golf Course.
The character of this course, designed by Tom Weiskopf, has been described as having an abundance of natural features, some of which include constant changes in elevation, a combination of mature indigenous trees and vegetation and some beautiful wetland areas with natural steams and ponds, all creating a dramatic and beautiful setting.After golf you can visit the quaint coastal town of Ballito.
Tee off at Durban Country Club after breakfast.
Extremely challenging to the most skilled golfer, the course will be enjoyed, but rarely mastered. Elevated tees and greens are guarded by an array of tropical bushes, tall trees and large bunkers. This, together with the narrow fairways and steep slopes make for a challenging course.
Have a delicious breakfast before heading Prince’s Grant Golf Course.
With panoramic views of the Indian Ocean, this development has been designed to capture the gracious colonial life-style of early Natal. Prince’s Grant Golf Course rates in the top 50 of South African golf courses and certainly one of the country’s very best coastal courses. Golfers will be assured of a truly memorable golfing experience.
Enjoy breakfast and a relax at the hotel before checking out. Return your vehicle to Avis at the airport and continue on your onward journey home.

We travelled with Falcon Safaris in Zimbabwe and Botswana for 16 days. Falcon designed a wonderful trip with private guide to the most interesting sites in both countries. The organization of the whole trip was excellent, flights within the country, accommodation and activites. The guides were very knowledgable and told us a lot about the countries, their history, people, economy and much more. Wevisited the Great Zimbabwe Ruins, the Victoria Falls and a number of national parks in both countries.
Rhino tracking was a real adventure! We had tremendous further game drives and saw very many animals - we did the Big Five. We had much more activities than planned and enjoyed very much.We strongly recommend Falcon Safaris to everyone planning a trip to Southern Africa and East Africa.
Our Consultant Vimbai was very helpful and accommodating. We stayed at the Elephant hills hotel which was nothing short of amazing.Our activities included a helicopter flight, dinner cruise as well as a morning game drive. All the activities were absolutely amazing.
We worked with Gertrude to schedule and organize everything and she did an excellent job. I asked a lot of questions via e-mail and she answered everyone in a timely helpful manner. Our guide at Victoria Falls was also great. He met us at the airport, provided a thoughtful tour of the Falls and got us to our next guide in Botswana. Our lodgings at River View Lodge were just as described- very comfortable and excellent food. All the staff were so pleasant and helpful. If I had to do it again I would arrange a morning boat ride as well. We only did the sunset boat rides and they were the high point of our entire trip- we saw so many animals and our guide was very knowledgeable. Just a great experience. Our lodgings at Oddball's Enclave was rustic and we loved it. So great to disconnect from the world for a bit. Leo, our guide, was the best - got us out and about, saw fantastic wildlife and got back to camp safely each time. Doc manages the camp so well. This whole trip was planned and organized by Falcon Safaris and we could not have been happier.
Falcon safaris have given my the correct advice with excellent service. The only suggestion will be to work closer with the lodges to confirm bookings as soon as possible. We have booked and pay our deposit a year in advance. We have only receive our final convermation from Chobe Safari lodge a week before departure. I do realize its not within your controle but with limit alternatives and a group of 14 people it becomes an issue to find alternative accomodation if the booking was cancelled.
Our passion for Africa and her rich diversity is what drives us to deliver superior itineraries for you. With over 30 years’ unrivalled experience, we believe your trip should be as unique as you are and so we tailor-make them for you as an individual.
