Enjoy a Relaxing Visit in the Lazy Seaside Town of Umkomaas, Gateway to the World Famous Aliwal Shoal

Our guesthouse is situated on the Kwazulu Natal coast just 60 kilometers south of Durban.  We are in the lazy town of Umkomaas which derives its name from the Umkomazi river.  Umkomazi is the Zulu word which means Whale cow.  The river was at one time large and deep enough to allow whale cows to swim upriver to calve.  The Shark and Shoal has a magnificent view over the river.
