We - Amblers hiking club visit Isithumba once or twice a year. We have always enjoyed the hike and the rock climb near the top. All the staff we have come into contact with have been kind, helpful, knowledgeable, polite and accommodating. We will return to this venue on an annual basis and will recommend this hike to anyone with some fitness including tourists from other countries! I would certainly like to see an Isithumba to sea or Inanda Isithumba return mountain bike race some time soon!!! And wanting to mountain bike all Isithumba trails is on my very busy bucket list!! - Dave Hancocks
