After the KZN floods: Update and Outreach

Posted on Wed April 20, 2022.

Beachfront Apartments is up and running after the floods and the apartments are safe to visit once again! How can you help after the floods?

The strength of the KZN province and her people in the last few weeks has been inspiring to witness. The recent floods and heavy rains have brought the province together. We are amongst the fortunate in that we, and our apartments, were safe from the damage!

Other than our water supply currently being intermittent and improving daily to be more on than off (follow on our Facebook page for the latest updates), our apartments are ready and waiting for you! Fresh drinking water is easily available from local suppliers.  Restaurants in the area are open and Ballito has returned back to it's normal, beautiful self! Additionally, the roads are open and access to Beachfront Apartments are clear. The N3 and N2 have been cleared and are safe to travel on, however there may be travel delays so please check (SANRAL HOTLINE 033 – 840 8484 / 068 087 8843)

With all of that being said, I would like to reassure you that we are up-and-running, our apartments are safe and we are still taking bookings! Thank you for the concern shown, it is much appreciated.

We are safe and we are grateful! But our neighbors need our help!
