Grab your bike and hit the trails in the magnificent Giba Gorge. Situated just outside Pinetown off the N3, Giba Gorge Mountain Bike Park offers a range of awesome mountain biking trails, a BMX track, and a restaurant – all boasting magnificent views of the stunning Giba valley.

Offering numerous scenic walks and viewpoints, Krantzkloof Nature Reserve is a haven for twitchers and jaded urbanites right in the heart of the suburb of Kloof. 

The spectacular Kloof Gorge is part of Krantzkloof Nature Reserve, and is one of the few places in Durban where Knysna Turaco can be found, along with a number of forest birds and the magnificent crowned eagle. 

The attractive Everton Conservancy is also part of the Kloof area, and to crown these ecological attractions – the spectacular Valley of 1 000 Hills Tourism Experience starts in Kloof. 

A magnet for eco-tourists, Kloof is also a welcome retreat for business executives visiting the nearby industrial areas of Pinetown and Hammarsdale. 

Krantzkloof Nature Reserve is open from 6am to 6pm daily. The entrance fee is payable for entry to the Reserve at any time via any of the entry points. If entering at one of the unmanned entrances, the fee should be paid at the Kloof Falls Road picnic site. 

Please ensure that you are familiar with your hiking route prior to departure, as it is fairly easy to get lost in the gorge. 

Guided walks take place on the first and third Sunday of each month at 8am. Cost is R30 per person and booking is essential for these walks. The walks leave from the main picnic site in Kloof Falls road. 

This market oozes with stereotypical country charm. It’s almost mandatory to pack up the family and dog, take a sturdy basket and arrive early. Treat yourself with a breakfast and from your vantage point on a hay bale, decide your method of attack. Peruse stalls at a leisurely pace as hands-on producers passionately talk you through their wares from traditional English sausages to decadent baked goods, handcrafted organic cheeses, breads and rustic French staples like terrines and rillettes. You’ll also find Middle Eastern and Mediterranean specialities from baklava to falafel. If you’re shopping with a conscience you can buy organic veg or a pre-installed, irrigated system to grow your own organic vegetables. There website here
