Pennington

Colonial origins for nature lovers

This resort named after Richard Pennington, is home to Botha House built by General Louis Botha for his wife, Annie, on land found for him by Sir Frank Reynolds, a sugar magnate and a member of the Colony's Legislative Council. This tied in with Sir Frank's idea of establishing a house in the area for the exclusive use of South Africa's Prime Ministers.

Umdoni Park, a sanctuary named after the Umdoni tree, was established by Sir Frank to preserve the indigenous fauna and flora. He presented it to the South African nation on 1920 and the Umdoni Trust was formed.

Golf and game

Today, the Park offers wonderful walking trails, excellent birding and the Komba Bird Sanctuary and Nkumbane Dam, which are perfect for appreciating the profusion of fauna to be enjoyed in this part of the world.

If you are into indigenous plants, take a stroll through local Indigenous Nursery to see the beautiful plants and birds native to South Africa.

Hidden treasures at Pennington include the Umdoni Park and Selborne Park courses where a round of golf comes complete with game and bird watching, as well as magnificent views of ocean and indigenous forest.

Sun, sand and surf

Pennington's splendid beach beckons - its golden sand and tidal pool, make it the perfect place for swimming and sun worshipping.
