The 175 hectare Zini River eco-estate is committed to conservation-orientated property development. It embraces and upholds the natural beauty of Mtunzini’s local fauna and flora. Located on grassy reclaimed canelands, it is nestled into the indigenous forest that surrounds the Umlalazi River in Mtunzini. With beautiful sea, estuary and riverine forest views, Zini River Estate places focus on environmental rehabilitation and eco-conscious living, providing an excellent investment opportunity in the unspoilt nature of Zululand. The adjacent Umlalazi Nature reserve together with the planting of 10 000 trees, and a requirement for indigenous gardens, has created a truly natural home for wildlife and birdlife of over 300 species. Reedbuck and Impala have been introduced to the estate, and can be found wandering freely.
The burgeoning estate offer 263 freehold stands at roughly 1500sqm, 56 sectional title units and 13 large equestrian stands ranging from 7000 to 21000sqm. The careful positioning of individual stands has resulted in optimisation of river and sea views. A flexible architectural code making use of quality materials and subdued colours ensures the aesthetic appeal of the development whilst catering for individual taste. The development spans 85 hectares with the balance reserved for conservation. Over half the available land has been reserved for common use, to maximise the sense of space and freedom. River access, hiking and bike trails and an extensive programme for the rehabilitation of the indigenous vegetation, brings nature to your doorstep. The estate is dog friendly, however when walking they must be kept on leash, due to the wildlife.
Iliza Bay, the sectional title development within the estate, overlooking the sea and the Umlalazi estuary, offers unsurpassed lifestyle in a pristine setting. The design of the units creates a spacious flow between inside and outside living areas, making the most of the warm climate. It has proven to be an extremely popular investment opportunity for rentals in a secure “lock up and go” environment. Facilities in Iliza Bay include a swimming pool and tennis court as well as a clubhouse which can be hired for functions.
The estate offers bird watching, walking, fishing, canoeing, mountain biking and picnicking. The estate perimeter is fenced with monitored electric fencing with 24 hour security for total piece of mind. The estate has it’s own independent swimming pool and clubhouse for those not in Iliza Bay.
