The Kamberg valley is described by its people as ‘the valley, which God created once he had practised on the rest of the world”.
It lies in the foothills of the Drakensberg Mountains just beyond the Nottingham Road turnoff from Durban, and there is a dominant sense of tranquillity, open space and calm here.
Essentially a farming community where the people regard themselves as ‘salt of the earth’ and love to play host to various activities like the Annual Kamberg Trout Festival, the Annual Miss Fertilizer Bag and the Kamberg Karma - three days of mountain bike riding - Kamberg is not only beautiful but alive with opportunities to explore the surrounding area.
The Kamberg Nature Reserve lies within the Ukhahlamba Drakensberg Park in the foothills of the mountains, surrounded by trout dams, streams and open grassland - perfect for hiking and fishing. The park offers sightings of Southern Reedbuck, Oribi, Duiker and Eland and the Trout hatchery is an opportunity to see how trout are reared.
The Kamberg San Rock Art Trail coupled with the Interpretive Centre will help visitors understand and interpret the more than 40 000 San Bushman images found in the Ukhahlamba-Drakensberg Park. On initial encounter by Europeans, ‘Bushmen paintings’ were regarded as crude, but today’s scholars have a healthy respect for these two dimensional rock paintings and a guided tour is particularly popular.
Other activities in Kamberg include beer, wine and cheese tasting, hot air ballooning, horse riding and golf.
