Ifafa means Sparkling One in Zulu. Shaka arrived at a place with beautiful views over a lagoon where the river meets the Indian Ocean. Shaka named this place Ifafa – or “place of the sparkling waters”. Visit this area to discover what delighted Shaka. Paddle up the lagoon and estuary, exulting in nature’s displays between the low cliffs and dense coastal forests or drive up to the two notorious lookout points to view the whales and dolphins at play. Ifafa offers holiday makers quiet beaches and beautiful bays with a tidal pool. But here fishing is what most visitors come for. There is a plentiful supply of karateen bait for fisherman and seven dams in the area provide excellent bass. If you come unprepared, rods and boats can be hired for fishing expeditions. Spear-fishermen rate Ifafa point as a wonderful reef on which to watch out for sharks and game-fish and the size of these creatures are subjects which enhance the folklore of the area.
