Area Information

Nestled on the banks of the Tongati River, lies Tongaat, a town rich in South-African history. A mere 37 kilometres north of Durban you will find KwaZulu-Natal’s popular sugar-producing town, partially rooted in its colonial heritage. It is also the oldest Indian community in the country, dating all the way back to the 1860s when indentured Indian labours arrived on the coast to work in the sugar plantations. The town is still one of the largest producers of sugar in the world. The Indian community has added an eclectic and exciting vibe to the town, with the Hindu temples Vishwaroop and Juggernath Puri keeping a protective eye over Tongaat locals.

One of the largest Hindu festivals in the country is held during the Easter period in Tongaat. The Brake Village Kavady Festival is an atonement festival where several traditions are celebrated and upheld. One of the practises includes the piercing of tongues and bodies with long steel needles and hooks as a dedication to Lord Murga, the Hindu deity of healing. In this way, Hindus also pledge their obedience to this deity as part of the age-old custom.

Tongaat is close to Crocodile Creek which is a crocodile breeding centre on the beach. Here visitors can get a bird’s eye view of these majestic reptiles without worrying about safety. There are several wonderful parks to visit that makes it the perfect spot for picnicking. The gardens of Amanzimyama provide a lovely day out with the family and kids will enjoy spending the day outdoors. Tongaat is also close to beautiful beaches along the coast which makes it easy to lounge around and soak up the sun.
