The Laughing Forest – Venues

The Laughing Forest

Elysium, Self-catering

The Laughing Forest is a resort on the KwaZulu Natal (KZN) south coast which offers self catering accommodation, a wedding venue, and several other facilities to make your time with us as pleasant and enjoyable as possible.


Nestled amongst coastal dune forest, we have created a personalised home environment for each log cabin. The 6 acre property is home to mpete buck, a variety of birds, monkeys and other wild life and is situated in Elysium, which is halfway between Durban and Margate.


The Laughing Forest is close to most sporting and regular tourist activities, but far from clubs and malls. We pride ourselves as a family orientated resort, catering for families wanting to build pleasant holiday memories.
