Umhlanga  In  South Africa  

Accommodation in Umhlanga

Umhlanga

This seaside resort was originally part of the sugar estate of Sir Marshall Campbell, who introduced the colourful rickshaws to Durban’s beachfront. When a track was made from Mount Edgercombe to Umhlanga Rocks, the area became popular with the local farmers who leased small plots on the shoreline of the ocean and built vacation cottages. In 1931 Umhlanga Rocks became a village and additional cottages, hotels, guest houses and stores were built.
