The 2017 Feast of Tabernacles will be held at the holiday town of Uvongo on the beautiful east coast of South Africa known as the "Hibiscus Coast."
Uvongo is situated approximately 160 kilometers (100 miles) south of Durban’s King Shaka International Airport.
All major car hire companies operate from the airport, which is adjacent to the N2 highway. Traveling south on the highway to Uvongo is a comfortable drive, taking approximately two hours.
There are a number of internationally recognized "Blue Flag" beaches in and around Uvongo, including St. Michaels, Margate and Ramsgate. Safe swimming and surfing can be enjoyed in the warm Indian Ocean.
Activities include deep-sea fishing, dolphin watching, shark-cage diving and bungee jumping for the brave hearted! The longest zip line in Africa is situated in the Lake Eland Game Reserve and crosses the very picturesque Oribi Gorge. There is an abundance of wildlife within the reserve, including zebra, giraffe, wildebeest and various antelope.
Services will be held in the Uvongo Community Hall.
