Krantzkloof Nature Reserve

Situated only four kilometres from the centre of Kloof this nature reserve, established by the Natal Parks Board in 1950, boasts an abundance of wildlife. It affords spectacular views across the well forested gorge cut by the Molweni River. Most of the reserve's 532 hectares is covered by dense forest and vegetation.

Its best known attraction is the well developed picnic area adjacent to the dam at the head of Kloof Falls. The Parks board has established an informative 'Interpretative Centre' at the site. This spot is easily reached by following Kloof Falls road. Leaving the picnic site, the visitor may proceed to Bridle Road and enjoy spectacular views from two well marked view sites. Another picnic site developed at the Nkutu Falls may be reached by turning right at the top of Bridle Road into King George Avenue (which becomes Valley Drive) and continues to the bottom of the hill. Prepared walks originate from the picnic areas and visitors may view the falls or descend into the gorge, following the river course. Organised walks can be arranged at weekends.

A further view site and walk may be reached by taking Krantzview Road into Quentin Smythe Road and then into Uve Road, where a trail begins at the gate to the reserve. The Wildlife Society is planning to establish a two day hiking trail incorporating the Krantzkloof Nature Reserve with other green belt areas within the Kloof/Gillitts/ Everton area.

Fauna in the reserve includes bush buck, bush pig duiker, mongoose, vervet monkey and rock rabbit. to name but a few. Birdlife is abundant and visitors are often rewarded by sighting or hearing crowned eagles, hornbills and loeries in the forests, and hammerkop and kingfishers near the water's edge.Flora in the reserve is mainly of the coastal type and the gorge is a botanical paradise and include many tress and shrubs unique to the Reserve.
