HAZELMERE, A HIDDEN TREASURE
Tucked away just 15 km from Durban’s new King Shaka International Airport and 40 km north of Durban city centre, you’ll discover the tranquillity of one of the north coast’s hidden treasures, Hazelmere Dam and Resort.
On the banks of the Mdloti River, about 4.5km north of Verulam and 19km from Mount Edgecombe, this reserve is flanked by the historic Inanda-Ntuzuma-KwaMashu (INK) Trail and has a magic of its own to offer. Here you’ll find shady picnic sites where you can watch waterbirds wandering on the dam shore and, of course, enjoy fishing and watersports.
For many, Hazelmere and music go hand in hand, thanks to our hosting of major events during December such as Fun In The Sun and the Durban Jazz Festival. Outside the music season, Hazelmere is a haven for leisure action. Come and join us to enjoy fishing, boating and watersports – or simply get to know some of the unusual trees which do not often occur so far south or watch the seed-eating birds among the grasses.
Explore the activities on offer at the hidden treasure that is Hazelmere Dam and Resort and you’ll go away with your own treasured memories.
Watersports: Hazelmere Dam is a local favourite for watersports from water-skiing and boating to canoeing and jetskiing. We also offer 28 boat lockers for storage of boats or caravans on an annual basis.
Fishing: Enjoy good inland fishing in the serene surroundings of Hazelmere Dam. Fish to try for include bass, tilapia and scalies (yellowfish).
Picnicking: Hazelmere’s picnic sites offer inspirational views of the dam and have become family favourites. You can book an area to be demarcated for a special event on request. The picnic sites are mowed often and the dustbins and ablution facilities serviced daily.
Birding: Look for brightly coloured waxbills and firefinches among the grasses and for plovers and other waterbirds at the dam edge.
