The Hawaan Forest is located just north of Durban in the Umhlanga Rocks region. This lush forest is a unique, indigenous woodland area that, after centuries, still remains unspoiled. The Hawaan Forest is a must for nature and bird lovers alike owing to the wealth of bird and animal species that inhabit the area. The forest is well preserved and in line with this, the beautiful hiking trails are not open to the general public. Instead, walks through the Hawaan Forest need to be arranged by contacting the Umhlanga Centre of Wildlife.
The Hawaan Forest is ideal for family picnics. Nestled between suburban Umhlanga and the immaculate Umhlanga beach the forest is the perfect weekend relaxation location. The forest is well maintained by local conservation and the trails are accessible and safe. There are bridges that span the lagoon allowing easy access to a popular fishing beach on the ocean-side of the forest.
In close proximity to the Hawaan Forest is Casa Playa, a luxury self-catering apartment in the heart of Umhlanga Rocks. The beautiful apartment is the ideal getaway as it is close to a melting pot of awesome beaches, world-class shopping centres, the Hawaan Forest, sophisticated nightlife and a smorgasbord of restaurants among many other attractions that the City of Durban has to offer.
