Overnight? Stay at accommodation in Newcastle, in KwaZulu Natal

The Ncandu State Forest Nature Reserve is the second biggest indigenous forest in KwaZulu Natal and is filled with grassy plains and yellowwood gorges.

There are many little streams running through the forest that meet the Ncandu River where trout are plentiful. This is the ideal place for a scenic stroll or relaxing horse ride.

Many trails run through the reserve which take you all though the sandstone cliffs, to the majestic waterfalls and allow for fabulous birding opportunities. You get here via boat and can wither walk on boardwalks through the forest or above the roof of the forest where the views are simply stunning.
