Hippo Inn Activities:

The town of Richards Bay boasts the country's largest harbour and some of its most magnificent wetland scenery. The town also offers the visitor entrance to Zululand.

This part of the African continent is a land of exquisite beauty unique in its incredible diversity. Richards Bay is a vibrant town and is quickly becoming a chosen north coast holiday destination, offering spectacular beaches and unspoilt natural scenery.

Richards Bay is one of the closest sea destinations from Gauteng and enjoys a summer climate all year round. The coastline stretches about three hundred and fifty kilometres from the mouth of the Tugela River in the south to the Mozambique border in the north.

The coastal plains include beautiful beaches and conservation areas and contains the largest estuarine system in Southern Africa.
