Where you’ll be

Waterfall, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa

Waterfall is virtually a suburb of Hillcrest, lying as it does directly north of Kloof and adjacent to Hillcrest and Forest Hill, barely 30 plus kilometres outside of Durban.

And this is the main advantage of a stay in Waterfall - that you are on the outskirts of the city. The other rather obvious one is that one inevitably beats the heat of the city out here. In Waterfall, one is far enough from city life to 'escape' it, whilst remaining close enough to the pulse of all one still needs for convenience. Subsequently, Waterfall functions as a sanctuary without depriving you of creature comforts.

Like Kloof there are a lot of trees and subsequently bird life too is abundant; the proximity to Krantzkloof Nature Reserve an added green belt that lends the area the feel of 'country' living.

A stay in Waterfall, unless you have your sights set on spending time in Durban proper, will not leave you bereft of plenty to do in the vicinity. The villages of Kloof and Hillcrest are both worth a visit, and the Midlands Meander is on your doorstep.

I run Waterfall Retreat and Environmental Centre in KwaZulu Natal South Africa and share the property with indigenous forests, wild cats, bird life, porcupines & bush bucks. One of my favorite things is sunset walks through the Nkutu valley & swimming in the falls . I love sharing the special valley with visitors and feel joy when I see guests appreciating and benefiting from their visits. When looking for places to stay I love bright, clean homes and spaces with a good flow and feeling and preferably surrounded by nature.
