About Richards Bay

Richards Bay is situated in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, on a 30-square-kilometre lagoon of the Mhlatuze River. This gives it one of South Africa's biggest harbours. With a balmy subtropical climate and a beach, Richards Bay is a relaxing spot to base yourself. Renting a car in Richards Bay is the only practical way to get around as public transportation of any kind is virtually nonexistent.

Richards Bay is the gateway to Zululand, a long-overlooked corner of the African continent swathed in exceptionally beautiful and astonishingly diverse landscapes. Golden beaches to the east are lapped by the warm waves of the Indian Ocean, with the coastline extending some 350km from the Mozambique border in the north to the mouth of the Tugela River in the south. The coastal plains are characterised by pristine beaches, coastal conservation areas, and the largest estuary system in South Africa.
