Views of the Developer.

The Developer believes if you want to change the world start in your own back yard. At New Salt Rock City we value nature, passion, creativity and community. We believe people can live more fully when connected to the wonder of nature. This is a community where people live, work, learn and play in celebration of life`s beauty. A place where connections between people and nature are nourished. This community is set amongst acres of preserved forests and meadows with kilometres of nature trails that connect homes and families with stunning beaches on your doorstep.

Go back to the 70`s where children still ride bikes and you would know where you child is when you see the bicycles on the pavement. Walking to school. Families and dogs walk or run without a fear for security. Generations can be part of each others lifes. No more old age homes. Having a grandparent aroun the block would benefit both generations.

Semigration Trend hits KZN North Coast

Towards the end of 2020, the rise of the "semigration trend" was identified by property developers and researchers in South Africa. Semigration involves moving form one province to another within the same country. Due to the effects of COVID-19 and the need to work remotely or from home, it has forced many to reconfigure their quality of life and living enviroments.

For some, it`s a way to escape from concrete jungles and be closer to nature; for others, they desire to slow down and lead a quieter life surrounded by family and friends. Regardless of the reason, semigration has seen a significant rise over the last few months of 2020. New Salt Rock City has seen a influx of people acquiring property in our estate dramatically increased the past year.

Just North of Ballito and Shaka`s Rock on the Dolphin Coast of KwaZulu-Natal, lies the small town Salt Rock. Locations and monuments such as the two pillars beyond the Salt Rock tidal pool and the tidal pool itself, are all part of the history of the town and the people who lived here. One of our favourite things about this town has to be the community - the people here really make it the place we know and love today!

Salt Rock boasts a number of great beaches. If you haven`t been to Salt Rock Main Beach for sundowners on a Friday evening, your are missing out. The beach will be buzzing with families and dogs, all enjoying the start of the weekend and making the most of living by the sea. 

The New Salt Rock City was born when the developer was unussual at the time in that it was built on an undeveloped site and not part of the old Salt Rock as we know it. It started off as Mount Richmore Village Estate. Soon the focus changed and it developed into a city in a forest and next to beaches. NSRC quickly became a polular attraction due to the upmarket shopping centre that was build. With anchor stores like Woolworths, Clicks , Super Checkers and Medical centre. The well established Curro School with 1000 students just enhanced the fact that this is the right adress for all new residence. The Dolphin Ridge Village is a estate inside the estate. It is behind the Curro school. Here the children can still walk to school. Cycling in the roads are a normal here. Families and dogs going for walks is a daily siting.

The Dolphin estate is in a gated estate within The New Salt Rock City Estate. Once you move here you are part of the Dolphin Ridge family. Families walk to each other having braai`s, kids bicycles lying on sidewalks. The way families are suppose to live. Here a entire generation can live happily together. Grand parents can live a street away from their children. both generations can benefit from this lifestyle. Land are available in this estate. You build the house that you need. 

There is no better location than New Salt Rock City. Creating a lifestyle that is nowhere else to be found. Affordable levies without the golf courses. You only paying for what you need.

"The new normal " in New Salt Rock City Estate

Man sacrifies his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. Then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present, the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die and then dies having never really lived.  ( Dalai Lama )


" And in the end, it`s not the years in your life that count. It`s the life in your years " ( Abraham Lincoln)
