The Zimbali Forest Estate incorporates 250 residential
units nestled in an expanse of lush indigenous Coastal Forest offering
its inhabitants a luxurious ecological haven.
A 50 hectare reserve within the estate in addition to all primary dune areas
have been demarcated as conservation areas providing a refuge to the rich variety
of local flora & fauna. Limited pathways and wooden viewing decks throughout these areas allow residents to interact with nature. Zimbali has several natural springwater lakes which create a beautiful habitat
to the 85 species of bird, hosts of butterflies and a wide variety of indigenous
plant life. Animal life within the forest reserve include bush buck, blue duiker,
bushbaby, vervet monkey, banded mongoose and even wild pig.
No pets of any kind are allowed into the estate without the prior permission
of estate management.
The eastern frontage of the estate comprises a 3 km stretch of unspoilt beach
forming a natural golden boundary between the rich green forest and the warm
blue Indian Ocean. The design philosophy in Zimbali is to create a balance with nature. The Zimbali lifestyle is founded on serenity and tranquility and an architectural
language has been applied to reflect this overall feeling.
