  • Place where fresh water about 1 meter digging in the dunes. Cold due to sand sheets existing water below the same and no fresh water swimming pools.

  • Rent a dune buggy with driver and follow paths with scenic views. Fossil dunes of Natal are a show visible only in few other parts of the world; high dunes that go to sea and inland lakes offer you exciting shows to live at least once. Not to be missed.
