Breathtaking beauty, tranquility .....and yes, a natural bum slide down the river
Arguably one of the prettiest picnic sites in the province at the point where uMngeni river and Mqeku river meet. Relax on the green lawns under the shade of giant fig trees or slide down the river on the natural rock slide.
This wonderful little spot is 100% community owned and managed, safe, beautiful, serene and the river bum slide is a highlight for all visitors. The site can get very busy over weekends, so bookings are essential.
Easily accessible from Hillcrest - a high clearance vehicle is advisable (no 4x4 needed)
Please note: There have been reports of bilharzia in the river over the past few months. This is being investigated and ongoing testing. In the interim, we advise that swimming is at your own risk.
