10 Things to Do in Uvongo That You Shouldn't Miss

July 24, 2017 Joeann Galban

Uvongo is a seaside resort south of Port Shepstone at the mouth of the Vungu River in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Uvongo is the largest upmarket residential area on the lower South Coast. The Vungu River has a waterfall that flows into a small gorge near the mouth. The town is named after the Vungu River, which is derived from the Zulu word that describes the sound of a waterfall or the wind in a gorge.

Southbroom Golf Course

Friendliest, best equipped & most Professional shop on whole coast, with fantastic attractive course, great club & wonderful staff

Reviewed By Stephne A - Shaka's Rock, South Africa

We travelled a total of 400kms to visit the ProShop which is so well stocked it makes a golfers eyes water! Well done to Sheena and Derek. The variety of Men's Pringle shirts, golf shirts and shorts and that amazing ARC label golf clothing for ladies is a winner.
Wish my golf did the course justice. It looks like an easy course but one needs to think about the tee shots as there is sufficient water to catch the inaccurate and those bunkers are not ornaments! I suggest taking a caddy as they know their oats. Wiseman was a great caddy and is highly recommended.
The course is really pretty so those that do not play golf would enjoy accompanying their golfing partner just for the beautiful views and some "strange" houses along the golf course.
Well worth a visit to play golf and some retail therapy.

Wild 5 Adventures

EXPERIENCE THE ULTIMATE RUSH! If you are a thrill seeker looking for the adrenaline-rush of a lifetime, the Wild Gorge Swing in Oribi Gorge will offer you guaranteed over-the-edge excitement! Give in to gravity by hurling yourself off the edge of Lehr’s Falls in what must be the most adrenaline inducing ride of your life! Rated as the world’s highest gorge swing, this activity means stepping (or diving) off the edge of the waterfall and plummeting into the 55-storey deep gorge. The free-fall is awesome and will have you accelerating up to the astounding speed of 120km/hours in 2.3 seconds. Wild 5 is situated on the Oribi Gorge Hotel property, 20 minutes’ drive from Port Shepstone, on the South Coast of KZN. Set amidst world-renowned view sites, Wild 5 Adventures offers a range of extreme (and milder) adventures in a setting of phenomenal natural beauty. These include a 110m abseil, foefie-slide, 85m suspension bridge, white water rafting on the Umzimkhulu, paintball and guided trails (hiking, birding and horseback). The fresh air does wonders for the appetite, so why not round off the perfect day by settling down for a bite to eat at the Oribi Gorge Hotel’s Wild Fig Cafe.

San Lameer Golf Course

Reviewed By 271hiltont - Johannesburg, South Africa

A very busy course in high season with lots of residents in the resort using the golf course. Booking is essential. Not cheap for visitors but resort home owners & residents enjoy a preferential rate. Golf Carts are essential as there are steep climbs and some long walks between green & tees.
The course is a coastal parkland with water coming into play on a number of holes. It is not too long but it is a challenging course in good condition. Pro shop is well stocked but expensive.
The halfway house was OK serving typical half way house fare. The clubhouse has recently been refurbished and updated but in the summer heat an outdoor table under the umbrellas with a cool breeze is the best place to enjoy the 19th hole.
Don't be put off that it is on a private estate. it is open to the public but as warned bookings needed.

Considering the inclement weather we had this past weekend, the hospitality of the owners and hosts of the caravan park the were very warm and friendly people. We had some amazing siting of a school of whales playing in the waters of the beach as well as the dolphins, we were also able to watch the beautiful fish eagle. They had caravan sites as well as parker homes, log cabins. All were very well looked after, the ablutions were very clean and the staff were, very helpful in setting up of the caravans and tents, they had a heated swimming pool as well as various play areas for the children. We had an amazing weekend.

Very average nothing outstanding I had a pedi and the Seating where they do it is really not comfortable. The pedi is rushed and painting poor. The views and the place is pretty but the service is not what I'm use too.
