We were delighted to find this little gem so close to us, only 25 mins drive, yet we felt like we were in a different place all together!! The resort is beautiful. We really enjoyed our one night stay, and the kids had a ball fishing in the ponds. We are planning to return and give the campsite a try...

We enjoyed our stay at Wellvale Private River Resort. We camped and found the facilities to be excellent. It is situated in a lovely scenic location, we saw a wide variety of birds as well. I would recommend this little gem to anyone who needs to stay a few nights in the Kwadukuza area.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Wellvale Resort, a top class eco-tourism hideaway, is bordered by the Mvoti River and boasts spectacular views of the Nsikeni Mountain. Situated in the popular Dolphin Coast region, Wellvale is only a short drive from Durban's King Shaka International Airport and perfectly located for day trips to some of South Africa's finest beaches. Accommodation is provided in luxury Lodges along the river with outdoor showers and king-sized beds, or in our family room which can sleep four people comfortably. We also have three shaded campsites and self-catering facilities for the more adventurous. Meals are served on our terrace where you can enjoy the bird song of the many different species resident at Wellvale while taking in the view of the mountains. After dinner you can relax in our fully-stocked, cosy bar, or pull up a chair beside the outdoor pit fire and enjoy a night-cap. As supporters of eco-friendly tourism we run our resort with the environment and local community in mind. You are welcome to visit some of the projects that we facilitate in the area, including an after schools club for local children and a soccer training initiative. Wellvale River Resort is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed retreat, while still being well-placed to explore the beautiful Dolphin Coast. ... more   less
