General Information

One of the most attractive and popular resorts on the KwaZulu-Natal South Coast, Scottburgh's past is steeped in both colonial and traditional Zulu culture. Shaka King of the Zulu’s and his entourage were amongst some of the early visitors to this area. Stopping to rest and drink from a nearby spring, he was distracted by the myriad of birds at the mouth of the river beside which the town was later to be built. He wondered how on earth each bird would know to which nest it should return and named the river Mpambanyoni which translates to Confuser of Birds. A plaque commemorating this event was erected at the site of the spring.

The Green Point Lighthouse, a national monument, was erected in 1905, and situated on a hilltop opposite Blamey's Bay, beams out a powerful warning to passing ships of the perils of the Aliwal Shoal. Although no wrecks are visible along this section of coast, the perilous shoal, treacherously close to the surface and nearly a kilometre wide in places, has had its fair share of casualties.

One of the first recorded tragedies was the British steamship Nebo, sinking on its maiden voyage to Durban in 1884. The most recent being the Amy Lykes, which ran aground one morning in 1970, and the Produce, in 1974. Deep-sea diving enthusiasts are spoilt for choice with a number of excellent dive sites in close proximity to the resort, with the Aliwal shoal, rated by Jacques Cousteau as one of the top ten dive sites in the world, being the jewel of the south coast. Take a trip to Croc world where over 10 000 crocodiles as well as raptors, snakes, tortoises, water birds and flamingos can be seen in a beautiful natural setting. A tree house enables the viewing of indigenous and exotic wildlife including monkeys and parrots. Make sure the visit coincides with one of the feeding times at 11am and 3pm daily.
