I strongly recommend that you do not visit this reserve, especially on a weekend. The river and waterfall are being used by religious groups for cleansing ceremonies, and huge numbers of people attend. The infrastructure is hardly maintained and is broken. At least one car is stolen from the car park each weekend (I have had two occasions when someone tried to steal mine). Sadly this beautiful reserve is no longer a go to place for local bird watchers, walkers, or family picnics.

We had our end of year function and thieves broke in one of our vehicles and stole equipment and what ever they could take they tried to open 3 of our cars as well but could not get in. Something needs to be done to have a security guard for the cars. I spoke to one other group there and we were told thieves are stealing cars there. This messed up our function please be careful when you leave your cars I have requested that they engage in security for the vehicles.

What a gem - only discovered via my activity via the Blood bank -KZN.
Hidden from public - why who knows. Relative quite from the highway noise.

It is a lovely nature reserve, beautiful waterfall. It was like going on a hike but we had the wrong shoes on. If you don't wish to take the walk up to the waterfalls, you can just chill and have a picnic on the beautiful lawns.

Enjoy going there with a picnic and lazing about in the sunshine with friends and family, the walks are easy to do and scenic and really give your kids an opportunity to experience nature first hand.

It's also a great place to take school kids to learn about nature.

Its well run and you feel safe in the reserve. Its close and convenient and good for recharging your batteries and also giving overseas visitors a touch of nature without having to travel far and go to the expense of overnight accommodation.

The picnic area is a wonderful place to be with family or friends, the area is widely open for out door games, the grass is very nice and soft, it has got braai areas where you can cook or braai your meat, there are walking trails that will lead you to water fountain and water fall, the conference area is very nice and private it can accommodate about 25 to 30 people at any given time.

The municipal-owned, mainly forest reserve is well maintained and frequently visited for picnics. The surrounding grassland is part of the reserve but requires special permission to visit.
The most popular spot is the waterfall.
The well-equipped interpretive centre is easily accessible, at the entrance to the reserve.
Parking is limited however, an overflow parking area can be accessed, about 100m from the actual parking.
Noise from surrounding traffic can be heard close to the bridge but the trees assist in screening off much of the noise.

It's not a hectic hike so even an unfit person would be able to manage. View on the bottom of the waterfall is beautiful. Take juice/water. Their is no restaurant or shop facilities on the reserve even though their website mentions a restaurant. Also there was a bit of dodgy candle circle slash stuff at the bottom by the waterfall... wasn't keen on that. Good picture opportunities. Definitely worth a visit but go early as parking later on will be a problem.
