We do recommend you hire a car during your stay at the estate. Pennington is 100km from the new Durban International Airport and the drive takes roughly one hour dependent on traffic.
For more shopping variety, the larger town of Scottburgh is a 10 minute drive away and larger malls of Galleria (Amanzimtoti) and South Coast Mall (Shelley Beach) are 50 km away, about a 30 minute drive.
If you donít fancy eating at home or driving anywhere there are a number of dining options from fine dining in the elegant a la carte restaurant at the Selborne Hotel to casual alfresco breakfasts and lunches at the hotel or golf clubhouse. A few minutes away, located within a local indigenous nursery right next to Selborne, is the Yellowood nursery which is an outstanding breakfast and lunch venue for all the family.
Located within the hotel is a spa offering a variety of treatments where you can indulge yourself in a restful and relaxing environment.
Diving at the Aliwal Shoal (10 minute drive from Selborne).
Selected as one of the top ten dive sites in the world by Diver Magazine, the shoal is a definite must. During the months of June through November you are sure to see the Ragged Tooth sharks as they congregate on the shoal to mate. It is not uncommon to find 15 to 150 of these ferocious looking but docile animals on a single dive. In summer you have every chance of seeing huge Tiger sharks and Hammerheads.
Kwazulu Natal has an astonishing array of wildlife. The province offers varied wildlife experiences ranging from wilderness trails in the Umfolozi Game reserve (4 hours north of Selborne) to sitting quietly in a hide at the Mkuze Game reserve watching the natural world parade past. The immediate area has 9 nature reserves and one established game reserve at Oribi Gorge. Close to Selborne is the Vernon Crooks Nature Reserve where you will find larger antelope and smaller wildlife but which is well known for its flora and extensive birdlife.

About the Owner
My husband Brian and I live in Dubai with our daughter Katie and a cat called Readymix (don't ask!). We bought the house off-plan in 2006 shortly after Katie was born. We were looking for a second home we could use to escape the ferociously hot summers here in the UAE.
Year property purchased:
Why this location?
Why the south coast? Because for us it remains one of the most unspoiled coastal areas in South Africa. Life is a slow there as it has always been, the weather is fabulous all year round, the beaches are magnificent and lastly we just loved the golf course at Selborne where the house is located.
