Woodpecker Inn

"Its a friendly comfortable place to be to enjoy holiday. Has enough space to relax outside having a braai near the swimming pool. I wish I had microwave and bigger towels to cover my average body in the room and imlrove cleaning outside the rooms . Before you enter the room you don't have to see so much dust. Security guards are exceptional, making sure that you and your vehicle are safe, so helpful and friendly. "

More about Richards Bay

Richards Bay serves as the gateway to Zululand and Maputaland from its eastern coast location. The town strikes a balance between being an industrial city as well as a destination that offers wetland scenery and beaches. A drive along the Zululand Birding Route is all it takes to reach this sea destination.

One of the unique sides of Richards Bay is its industrial tourism. There are ample opportunities to visit mines and industrial plants that end up in the country’s largest harbor and the world’s largest coal terminal. In stark contrast to the industrial tourism is the eco-tourism. Richards Bay Game Reserve boasts some of the best wetland areas on the north coast of KwaZulu Natal. Forest areas, mud flats, and mangroves all add to the landscape and cater to a range of aquatic birds and wildlife. Fishing and surfing can be enjoyed, and so too can visits to art galleries and scenic drives through the countryside.

Accommodation options in Richards Bay are plentiful. Inns, lodges, and guest houses can all be found here. A couple of places to stay can be found near the airport while others are located between Mzingazi and the coast. Be sure to check out the interactive map of Richards Bay for information on hotel locations, attractions, and must-see destinations.
