Oribi Gorge is in an unspoilt part of KwaZulu Natal’s South Coast Region. Over centuries the Mzimkulwana River has etched this gorge into the mountains, creating a rugged natural landscape with sandstone cliffs and forest-covered ravines. Oribi Gorge is approximately 27 km long, 1 km wide at its widest point and 400 metres deep. A private nature reserve, it is a bird watchers paradise with over 255 different species including the cape vulture and the fish eagle. The rare samango monkey, baboon, serval, otter, mongoose, bushbuck and leopard are just some of the interesting animals that make the gorge their home.
