Tucked away just 15 km from Durban's new King Shaka International Airport and 40 km north of Durban city centre, you'll discover the tranquillity of one of the north coast's hidden treasures, Hazelmere Dam and Resort. On the banks of the Mdloti River this reserve is flanked by the historic Inanda-Ntuzuma-KwaMashu (INK) Trail and has a magic of its own to offer. Here you'll find shady picnic sites where you can watch water birds wandering on the dam shore and, of course, enjoy fishing and water sports. For many, Hazelmere and music go hand in hand, thanks to their hosting of major events during December such as Fun In The Sun and the Durban Jazz Festival. Outside the music season, Hazelmere is a haven for leisure action. Take the family and enjoy fishing, boating and water sports - or simply get to know some of the unusual trees which do not often occur so far south or watch the seed-eating birds among the grasses.
