Located along the scenic Wild Coast in the Eastern Cape, Mkambati Nature Reserve is a must visit if you’re looking for an unforgettable off the grid coastal adventure. This jewel is ideally situated in the northern part of the Wild Coast, just 4 hours from Durban. Expect to be surrounded by hectares of open grasslands boasting beautiful indigenous forest patches, and swamp forests flanked by the magnificent forested ravines of the Msikaba and Mtentu rivers. Enjoy the vast animal life found in the area, like Eland, red hartebeest, blue wildebeest, gemsbok and blesbok, as well as the abundant bird and marine life along this coastline, which includes dolphins and whales, on your visit. We of course also cannot leave out the incredible waterfalls you’ll find here.
Around the area:
The hiking and trails within the reserve are what attract so many visitors to this untouched part of the Wild Coast, with one of the most popular walks being the trail that leads to Horseshoe Falls. You will be taken aback by this incredible plunge of water falling first on to another terrace before dropping into the sea below. A hike up the Msikaba River to the amphitheater is a must, also add to that a canoe trip up the Msikaba River in the gorge. Remember to use water responsibly and save like a local on your visit.
