KwaZulu-Natal

The Umtamvuna Nature Reserve lies along the northern bank of the Umtamvuna River which marks the boundary between KwaZulu-Natal and the Eastern Cape.

The reserve is administered by Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife who describe the reserve as a "botanical paradise". Certainly the lush vegetation and flowers are the lasting memories of a visit to the reserve.

A number of trails lead through the 3,247 hectare reserve. The hikes last from a few hours to a full day in duration. There is no accommodation in the reserve but there is plenty of accommodation available in the nearby coastal towns.

On the trails you may encounter mammals such as Baboon, Samango Monkey, Bushbuck, Blue Duiker and Reedbuck. Birders will also find plenty to look for.

Thick vegetation is the order of the day
