Capital Zimbali


Overlooking the lavish coastline of the Indian Ocean, this is a resort that has something for everyone – luxury accommodation, fantastic wildlife, flora & fauna (Zimbali means ‘valley of flowers’) a fun children’s programme and great golf. All of the resort’s rooms have ocean views, with guests having a choice of six restaurants and bars in which to relax. In addition to the beach, there is also the Signature Spa, and a fitness centre with a choice of fitness classes.


Our Thoughts

Unlike the neighbouring Zimbali Lodge & Spa, this property enjoys a beachside location and has a wider range of facilities. More suited to families, in addition to the four swimming pools and numerous bars and restaurants, there are also extensive children’s programmes & facilities.

  • Mangwanani Signature Spa
  • Championship golf course
  • Four swimming pools
  • Unique Gin Academy
  • Tennis
  • Kids club
  • Six bars and restaurants
  • Fitness Centre

Stunning views of the Indian Ocean, oversized verandas and with a décor of neutral tones of stone and wood, The Capital Zimbali makes for a sumptuous stay. Where large luxurious bathrooms come as standard, you will feel like royalty in your own private paradise. The large selection of room categories include Luxury Rooms, Family Suites, Garden Suites, Apartments, Villas, Presidential Suites and Penthouse, with inter-leading rooms available.

  • Safari outings, including Big Five game viewing
  • Dolphin and whale watching tours
  • Hiking and mountain biking
  • Historic Zulu battlefields
  • Golf at the Zimbali Country Club
