I recently booked a night's stay at Giba Gorge for my girlfriend's birthday.

I found the views and trails enjoyable but the stay at the Teepees was very unpleasant as the Teepees have tears in them and the bed made me feel very itchy, the pillows were uncomfortable and the teepee was unable to completely close.

we were also informed after placing our stuff and sitting on the beds that we would have to move Teepees as the teepee we selected was dirty, bugs were coming in our Teepee the entire night and even when I go camping at least my tent is still sealed, it did not feel secure at all and neither did my girlfriend and noticed it was severely lacking any form of decent security.

I immediately regretted paying for dinner and breakfast as there was no set dinner menu and we ended up being overcharged as we paid R440 and only spent a total of R230 between my girlfriend and myself.

We had been asked numerous times about how much we had paid for the food, it being my girlfriend's birthday she was not supposed to know. The next morning when having breakfast, the waitress took our drinks order my girlfriend had a tea that comes free with breakfast and I had a cappuccino.

I then selected the bacon egg caramelized onion on toast and was told it does not come with a free cappuccino which I found incredibly insulting considering we had not even spent the entirety of the money we had paid.

I would like to ask that the funds that were not used during the visit be returned

The highlight of the trip had been the pleasant staff member who assisted us and had been kind to us upon booking the trip thank you for your kindness you were the only one who put in the extra effort.

Unfortunately, after this experience, we will not be coming back again truly disappointing.

Kind Regards,

We arrived at the Giba Gorge around 11.30am on Saturday and it was hot. Place is very scenic but not too organise with regards to the activities

Lunch was value for money from the burgers and the pizza. We had 4 x burger special and took a hike on the purple trail which after a few hundred metres can be misleading as 3 trails interact with each other. The Waterfall is simply beautiful. Carry extra water as at reception a few people were dehydrated and had a be hospilitised.

A value for money place on Durban doorsteps. I drove from my misleads getaway backwards to experience the gorge

I will be back

Shocking, shocking, shocking! I'd give it NO stars, if I was allowed to.

A beautiful venue, but avoid having an accident/incident there, at any cost. No medically trained person in attendance at their medical centre. Richard eventually arrived, and we stood and watched him, as he continued on his personal call. Once finished, he simply waved us towards some old looking medication and invited us to "help yourselves".

Whilst my 10 year old son's injury was minor, I was concerned about Giba Gorge MTB's inability to handle a more serious injury, should this occur, and felt it appropriate to bring it to the owner's, Mr. Chris Harburn's, attention. WHAT A MISTAKE! Mr. Harburn's response was dreadful! He was arrogant, condescending, and completely disinterested in what I had to say. If this is the way he talks to his paying customers, when simply bringing a problem to his attention, I shudder to think how he would address a more serious issue.

Visit Giba Gorge MTB, if you must, but, in the event of you injuring yourself, don't expect Mr. Harburn, or his staff, to show any interest at all.

This place is best avoided.

This is a great place for Hikers, trail runners and mountain bikers all from entry level to advanced sports. Afterwards two restaurants to choose from or bring your own picnic to enjoy the lawns or the new braai areas. A conference centre awaits for those who mean business!

I have been to Giba many times. It has all you need if you want to get away from the daily hustle. With large outdoor naturally shaded areas from the trees above you can bring a blanket and just chill for the day or If you are looking for adventure you can take on the Giba trail with your own bike or you can hire a bike. You can also walk the trail if you are looking for a more relaxed adventure. The trails offer beautiful sites and brilliant for the bird watchers out there. I recommend Giba to anyone and everyone.

Easy access via Marian Hill area. Ample parking. Security adequate.
All you need are tackies - bicycles available. Beer is cold and good selection of food.
Peaceful walks. Enough trees to "hugh"!

Had a lovely morning letting the kids ride and ride to their hearts content. We could follow on foot. Routes are clearly marked and the staff is super friendly and helpful!

My grandson had his 6th birthday here and what a success it was. Beautiful walk to the waterfall (others rode their bicycles) with 2 guides and the view is spectacular. Safe environment and generally a great place to relax.
