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