About Krantzkloof Nature Reserve
Offering numerous scenic walks and viewpoints, Krantzkloof Nature Reserve is a haven for twitchers and jaded urbanites right in the heart of the suburb of Kloof.
The spectacular Kloof Gorge is part of Krantzkloof Nature Reserve, and is one of the few places in Durban where Knysna Turaco can be found, along with a number of forest birds and the magnificent crowned eagle.
The attractive Everton Conservancy is also part of the Kloof area, and to crown these ecological attractions – the spectacular Valley of 1 000 Hills Tourism Experience starts in Kloof.
A magnet for eco-tourists, Kloof is also a welcome retreat for business executives visiting the nearby industrial areas of Pinetown and Hammarsdale.
Krantzkloof Nature Reserve is open from 6am to 6pm daily. The entrance fee is payable for entry to the Reserve at any time via any of the entry points. If entering at one of the unmanned entrances, the fee should be paid at the Kloof Falls Road picnic site.
Please ensure that you are familiar with your hiking route prior to departure, as it is fairly easy to get lost in the gorge.
Guided walks take place on the first and third Sunday of each month at 8am. Cost is R30 per person and booking is essential for these walks. The walks leave from the main picnic site in Kloof Falls road.
