About Krantzkloof Nature Reserve

Situated only 4 kilometres from the centre of the Kloof village which is about 20 minutes drive from Durban, this nature reserve was established by the Natal Parks Board in 1950 and boasts an abundance of wildlife.

Did you know? The reserve's best known attraction is the well developed picnic area adjacent to the dam at the head of Kloof Falls.

Krantzkloof Nature reserve offers spectacular views across the well forested gorge cut by the Molweni River. Most of the Krantzkloof Nature reserve's 532 hectares is covered by dense forest and vegetation.

The reserve's best known attraction is the well developed picnic area adjacent to the dam at the head of Kloof Falls.

The Parks board has established an Conference Centre at the site. This spot is easily reached by following Kloof Falls road. Leaving the picnic site, the visitor may proceed to Bridle Road and enjoy spectacular views from two well marked view sites.

Another picnic site in the Krantzkloof Nature Reserve developed at the Nkutu Falls may be reached by turning right at the top of Bridle Road into King George Avenue (which becomes Valley Drive) and continues to the bottom of the hill.

Prepared walks originate from the picnic areas and visitors may view the falls or descend into the gorge, following the river course. Organised walks can be arranged at weekends.
