I have made many trips to Shongweni Dam and have enjoyed every experience, be it a picnic trip or stay over at the tented camps. If you are a nautre lover and enjoy the rustic experience, then this venue will be a treat.

Great place to spend a night or two. Awesome cabins right on the water. Monkeys are a bit of a pain.(take a water gun) Safari tent has everything needed. Loved it, relaxing and would return again and again.

Spent an overnight in this reserve. It's not near ANY beaches as advertized. It's not the ideal spot for a bit of peace and quite, staff and visitors are very noisy. Seems to be used by locals who have the run of the place. It's run down and badly managed. Foreigh visitors beware, you are not welcome here.

Shongweni Dam is a good place to escape from the city for the day. Very close to Durban. Has braai areas, fishing, jungle gym, trampoline, and canoes for hire.. Kids loved the canoes and had hours of fun on the dam. A very relaxing place to spend the day,.
