strewn beaches stretch out for miles on either side of the river mouth.

The wildlife and in particular the birding here, is fantastic. The raffia palms monument in Mtunzini is short walk away from Natures Way Backpackers. Consisting of a magical grove of these palms that is closely associated with the rare palm nut vulture, only found in two places in South Africa, here and in Kosi Bay. The vultures feed on the husk of the nut and nest close to the water in shaggy nests built of palm fronds.
