About Umtamvuna Nature Reserve

The Umtamvuna Nature Reserve in Port Edward on the glorious South Coast is famous for its magnificent views of the deep Umtamvuna River Gorge.

Did you know? A small picnic site is situated above the office within the Umtamvuna Nature Reserve, and a day visit is a rewarding experience.

A leisurely two hour drive from Durban will get you to Umtamvuna, which is a treasure house of rare and endemic trees and plant species in a diversity of habitats, with spectacular wild flower displays after the spring rains.

The reserve has the best nature walks along the KwaZulu Natal coastline, with several marked trails to explore. A large colony of the endangered Cape Vulture can be observed on their nesting sites.

No accommodation is available in the Umtamvuna Nature Reserve but excellent South Coast accommodation is plentiful in the nearby towns.
