Welcome to the home of the Durban International Kayak-Polo Tournament!

This is an annual event held at the picturesque Umzinyathi Canoe Club at Shongweni Dam in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa.

Shongweni Dam is an idyllic venue situated in the centre of a Game Reserve, boasting great facilities, and is only a 40 minute drive away from King Shaka International Airport and less than 30 minutes from the beaches of Durban. It offers accommodation options ranging from tented camps, or camping on the banks of the dam, and is a 15 minute drive from local bed & breakfasts. During the weekend you can view giraffe, waterbuck, wildebeest, impala, zebra, as well as other antelope and a variety of birds around the Reserve – and you’ll have to keep a close eye on the cheeky local monkeys!

The event is hosted annually at Umzinyathi Canoe Club, Shongweni Dam, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa. You can find out more about Umzinyathi Canoe Club, and see photographs of the beautiful venue, on the Umzinyathi website.
