The rolling hills of KwaZulu Natal have been shaped by the flow of water, and the rich green of our landscape is testament to the rivers, streams and waterfalls that define it. Experience this first-hand with a tailormade waterfall tour or a leisurely day on the banks of a river.
Durban Waterfall Tour
See three of Durban’s incredible waterfalls with a lunch-stop and scenic walks on route.
The first stop on this 5-falls tour is the Umzinyathi Waterfall in Inanda Valley where a hike into the gorge will give you views of the magnificent falls from every angle.
Next is the Nkutu Waterfall in the Krantzkloof Nature Reserve, formed in the ancient Kloof Plateau by the Molweni and Nkutu Rivers – tributaries of the uMngeni river. The last stop is Paradise Valley Waterfalls with a beautiful walk through large strelitzias, over a wooden bridge and down the stone steps to the bottom of the falls.

Mqeku Rock Slide (isiThumba)
The Valley of 1000 Hills is where you will find the isiThumba Adventure Centre and the Mqeku picnic site and natural rock slide. The point where the uMngeni and Mqeku rivers meet, is one of the prettiest spots in the province with some of the most pristine waterways too. Enjoy the cooling waters as you slide down the natural rock into the pool beneath, and when you have eventually had enough, relax on cared-for green lawns under the shade of giant fig trees.
- Book at GreenHub - the site can get very busy over weekends, so bookings are essential.
