The Bushbuck Club – BBC for short – is the entertainment center for adults and kids alike. Keep the kids occupied with the jungle gyms and trampolines.

Catch up with friends in the magnificent cafe filled with the delicious aromas of exquisite food and your favourite drinks.

Experience the beauty of nature

Delight in the lush splendour of nature – a 50-hectare reserve within the estate.  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 for birds, a host of butterflies and a wide variety of indigenous plant life.  Animal life within the forest reserve includes bush buck, blue duiker, bushbaby, vervet monkey, banded mongoose and even wild pig. Nature at its best, you’ll love it!
