About Mnweni Cultural and Hiking Centre

Immerse yourself in the untainted beauty and splendour of the KwaZulu-Natal portion of the Drakensberg when you visit Mnweni Cultural and Hiking Centre. This centre is a hotspot of activities for locals and visitors that revel in the scenic splendour of this country. The Mnweni Centre is located between the Royal Natal National Park and the Cathedral Peak Conservation Areas, with areas that rise up to form the boundary between Lesotho and South Africa.

Thanks to its excellent situation, Mnweni is able to offer a range of activities to its visitors. Hiking is one of the most popular and there are a range of trails from which to choose. These range from easier day walks that are manageable by most to overnight hikes and summit hikes, which require more experience and better fitness levels. There are experienced guides on hand to provide information along the way and to ensure that you get the most out of your hike. Along the way, you will encounter natural pools and rivers. These provide a welcome retreat for hot, tired hikers and are stunning backdrops for your holiday photos.

The trails are also fantastic for trail runners, and there are specific routes for mountain bikers. These include short options and gravel road sections. Exploring the area around Mnweni at this pace is optimal, and there are a few challenging spots along the way to test your skills.

Fly fishing is another very popular activity in the Mnweni area, owing to the three major rivers in the region, and the abundance of fish found within. In these rivers, rainbow trout and scaly can be found. In the Woodstock Dam, which is about 10 kilometres from the Mnweni Centre, large-mouth bass and carp can be caught.

Those with a penchant for South Africa’s ancient history, a visit to the local rock art sites will be fascinating. This art was left here by the San, who were hunter-gatherers that lived off the produce of the land. Rock art custodians can be requested so that you are able to find all of the remnants of these folk, and so that you can have your questions answered.

The other activities offered at Mnweni include horse riding, camping and mountaineering. This is, indeed, a prime spot for family vacations or weekend getaways.
