Zimbali Lakes Resort & Zimbali Office Estate

We have a large enough land bank in Zimbali to fuel our development pipeline for the next 10 years.

- Werner Burger, CEO, IFA Hotels & Resorts, South Africa


Zimbali Lakes Resort
Located 45 kilometers North of the South African port city of Durban and within close proximity to all modern amenities – including several of South Africa's impressive 'Big Five' safari game parks and historic Anglo-Zulu battlefields – Zimbali Lakes Resort is perfectly positioned as the ultimate family residential and leisure development within the KwaZulu-Natal province.

To be purposefully developed as one of the finest coastal residential and resort estates in Southern Africa, Zimbali Lakes Resort will echo the ethos and outstanding development principals of the Zimbali Coastal Resort – and ultimately comprise an oasis of stylish and comfortable living to offer an unmatched opportunity to embrace nature while living out a life of security, freedom and beauty.

Within close proximity to pristine stretches of golden sandy beaches and as a significant addition to the international award-winning Zimbali Coastal Resort, Zimbali Lakes Resort is set to extend the development lifespan of Zimbali for a further 15 years and in doing so, will introduce a new era for exceptional investment opportunities. This prestigious resort will be located on the southern and northern banks of the Tongati River and, with potential investors already anxious to secure a prime position of previously undeveloped land, Zimbali Lakes Resort is set to soar. The project has been designed to accommodate 1,000 residences on completion.

Zimbali Office Estate
There is a noted absence of high-end, AAA Grade office space situated along the M4 highway and Ballito area of South Africa's KwaZulu-Natal region. The newly launched Zimbali Office Estate addresses this shortage by creating a superb high-end office park precinct offering quick and easy access to the residents of Zimbali Coastal Resort, Zimbali Lakes Resort and the surrounding areas.

As a result, the joint venture partnership between Tongaat Hulett Developments and IFA Hotels & Resorts has brought to the market the first phase of commercial opportunities for the region. The Zimbali Office Estate will yield a total of 15 sites (Office Park 1) within the first phase and will offer an overall development potential of 26,688 sqm of prime office space within this initial phase. Located adjacent to Office Park 1, the second phase (Office Park 2) will be brought on stream as soon as the first phase has been sold out.
