Oribi Gorge – KZN Wildlife

One of KwaZulu-Natal’s most spectacular natural settings, the scenic Oribi Gorge Nature Reserve lies some 21 km inland from Port Shepstone. Ideal for a weekend getaway or day-excursion, Oribi offers many delightful walks and self-guided trails to scenic spots in the reserve.

The scenery along the gorge formed by the Umzimkulwana River is a photographer’s and nature lover’s paradise. There are numerous idyllic picnic spots on the banks of the river. Be advised, though and do not swim or paddle in the river because of the risk of contracting bilharzia. There is a reservoir swimming pool, with a sundeck, in the camp for residents.

Besides its magnificent views, Oribi has a wealth of other attractions as well. Wildlife to be seen in the reserve includes mammal species such as bushbuck, common reedbuck and blue and grey duiker. Leopard occur in the area and with luck, you may join the select band of game viewers to have seen one of these secretive creatures. The bird list numbers 250 and with its diverse habitats bird watching in Oribi is a rewarding experience.
