About Rocky Drift Nature Reserve

Rocky Drift Nature Reserve lies in the valleys of the Waterval Boven area in Mpumalanga. The spectacular mountain terrain is a popular destination for rock climbing and hiking.

There is a fresh water stream which is nourished by the Joubert Spruit tributary of the Elands river. The nature reserve boasts a wide variety of wild life, including bush buck, baboon, klipspringer, duiker, steenbok, vaal reed buck, vervet monkeys, leopard, genet, rooikat, and rock pythons.

The slopes of the valley were once used by President Paul Kruger's commandos during their escape to exile in Maputo.
