"I booked this hotel for my parents for a day shopping trip to Richards Bay. The room was clean and smartly appointed. My father is in a wheelchair and the room and bathroom were both perfect for him. Staff were friendly and helpful. However, my parents were staying in room 107 - and the noise coming from other guests in a lounge-esque area near the room was horrific. The irony was that there was a sign asking guests to keep the noise down after 20:00; but the staff did nothing to stop them until about 11pm when they were eventually asked to leave. When asked, the staff said that my parents could have called security (my parents did not know this), but the commotion was in full view of the staff. Other than that, the staff was very pleasant and the stay was lovely; definitely recommend!"

"Not knowing what to expect, we choose Richards Bay because it cut off 2 hours of our journey north to our Safari. Travel books had discouraged stopping there as it is an industrial port. The Imvubu Lodge was a total surprise and we loved our time there. It was September and it was mating season for the Weaver Birds who build these intricate nests and you can watch them while you eat. And we would be remiss if we failed to mention "Frank" the crocodile. You can go into Richards Bay to a very large shopping center via taxi very easily. We loved our King Suite that came complete with kitchen and a decanter of sherry that was refilled each day. There was a great view of the Indian Ocean and you could see ships for miles. While much of Richards Bay is very developed the Lodge is in the jungle complete with monkey's, flowers and a variety of birds."

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.
