Drifters Dolphin Coast Lodge


Situated in the quiet coastal village of Umdloti, only 20 minutes drive north of Durban and 10 minutes away from King Shaka International Airport. This Lodge is built literally on the beach and overlooks the crashing waves of the Indian Ocean and clean white sands. An ideal getaway for those who wish to enjoy the unspoiled beaches and other attractions of the KwaZulu-Natal north coast without being in the hustle and bustle of large tourist centers.

This Lodge offers direct access to stunning beaches, a tidal pool and freshwater lagoon. Numerous restaurant options and a small shopping facility are also within easy walking distance. The Lodge itself boasts a lovely private pool deck with refreshing swimming pool and clients may enjoy a self-guided forest walk through indigenous coastal forest on the property.

The TV lounge with wireless internet, bar, and open breakfast room offer excellent views of the ocean, dolphins and whales often frolic in the waves. Rooms are all sea facing and are twin bedded. Breakfasts are included.

From the traffic circle at the Umdloti beachfront - drive north along the beach Drifters is at the end of the road in a quiet cul-de-sac.

We look forward to ensuring that you enjoy your time spent with us.
