Oribi Gorge

Easily accessible from Port Shepstone, you’ll find yourself in the famous adventure capital of the KZN South Coast, Oribi Gorge.

Oribi Gorge offers unforgettable scenic views, which can be accessed via multiple viewing points around the area, including the famous overhanging Leopard Rock. Some of the rocks at the base of the cliffs are as old as 100 million years. Walking trails through the Oribi Gorge Nature Reserve are a great way to unlock some of the treasures, including scenic waterfalls, such as Samango Falls.

Apart from over 300 recorded bird species, there are also a breeding colony of rare Cape vultures that can be viewed closely at a vulture hide and restaurant as part of a guided tour.

The area is home to some of the wildest adventures, including the highest gorge swing in the world and Africa’s longest and fastest zipline. Not to mention wild water rafting, abseiling, suspension bridges, paintball and more.

Don’t miss Lake Eland Game Reserve, where you can do a wide variety of activities, from ziplining to game drives, horse riding to scooter tours and much more.

Make sure to stop at the farm stall on your way out to pick up snacks and mementos.
