Our 2 major attractions are the Oribi Gorge Nature Reserve and Lake Eland Game Reserve.
Oribi Gorge Nature Reserve (85.2 km)
One of KwaZulu-Natal’s most spectacular natural settings, the scenic Oribi Gorge Nature Reserve lies some 25 km inland from Port Shepstone. The Reserve lies snugly at the head of a magnificent river gorge lined with dense coastal bush and forests. The reserve was proclaimed in 1 April 1950 and is 1 917 ha in extent. Carved out of ancient sandstone over millions over years, the resort commands an impressive view of the Gorge. The breath-taking scenery along the Umzimkulwana River Gorge makes this a photographer’s and nature lover’s paradise. Oribi Gorge has a wealth of smaller wildlife species and visitors have occasionally seen leopards. Oribi Gorge is a wonderful birding destination with more than 250 species recorded.
