Our first stop is a visit to the Leopard's Rock, which is set on a rocky incline with sweeping views over the majestic Mzimkhulu River Gorge.
We then visit the Oribi Gorge Nature Reserve, which is a wonderfully scenic area offering excellent hiking opportunities. Wildlife in the Oribi Gorge consists of many antelope, although the oribi (after which the gorge is named) is rarely seen. A photographer's paradise, Oribi Gorge Nature Reserve encompasses forests, rivers, rapids and ravine. High sandstone cliffs dominate this 24 km long gorge carved out by the Umzimkulwana River. Leopards, troops of baboons, various small antelope and a prolific birdlife, including five species of kingfisher and seven species of eagle, inhabit the reserve.
Activities at Oribi Gorge include the Wild Swing and the Wild Slide. The Wild Swing is one of the most popular big swings in South Africa and the highest in the world. It entails a heart-stopping leap off the top of the waterfall that leaves you swinging more than 100 m to the gorge below. You can a walk on the suspension bridge which is 48 meters a spectacular opportunity to be suspended between heaven and terra firma, as you hover 100 m above the Gorge floor enjoying views never before seen of Lehr’s Waterfall, Baboon’s Castle and the World’s Highest Gorge Swing.
