Good views of the renowned Valley of a Thousand Hills into the interior of the countryside. Good restaurant for the whole family and genuine hand made souvenirs from the area. A great place to visit right on your doorstep. Plenty safe outdoor parking.

For sure one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to. This area really feels like the true Africa, especially with the traditional Zulu villages in the valley. Also felt like I was the only tourist around.

The valley of 1000 Hills is truly that. The views are exquisite and not far from the bustle of the city portion of Durban

I have taken overseas visitors to experience a little bit of Africa in the suburbs and they have enjoyed the variety of activities offered at the same location. This is good if you do not have a lot of time for sight seeing.

Absolutely stunning, the drops into the valleys and climbs back up the hills are awe striking, left in amazement of the beauty and pictures can not catch it. A beautiful river that runs through them and amazing cliffs! Best place we visited in South Africa
