Scottburgh

Scottburgh is named after John Scott, the Governor of Natal when the area was surveyed in 1860 as the first township in Natal south of Durban.

There is a large sugar mill upstream in the Mpambinyoni River and for some years its bay was used as a loading area. The bay however offered little shelter from the rough seas.

Scottburgh is one of the most popular south coast resorts today -and the nearby Aliwal Shoal provides a rich-fishing ground. Protected swimming, tidal pool and a championship golf course are but a few of the attractions that are offered.

Crocworld lies between Scottburgh and Umkomaas and is one of the biggest crocodile shows in Africa. They have more than 10 000 of the creatures, a video, a nature trail and bird watching. It has become big industry to breed crocodiles for their meat and 99% of it is exported.
