About Valley Of Thousand Hills, Durban
This isn’t really one attraction. It’s many attractions spread out over a scenic drive through hills, valleys, ridges and cliffs that were all brought into being by the umgeni River as it flows to the Indian Ocean. So what can you see here? Let’s tackle nature first. The valley can be breathtakingly beautiful, especially early in the morning or at dusk. Lush tropical forests, waterfalls, and abundant wildlife enchant every visitor. That said, the valley is an equally important gateway into the Zulu culture. Scattered over the hills are resorts and small villages that make for perfect getaway from the city. Within these resorts, the colourful Zulu maintain their traditional lifestyles, preserving their heritage in the very best way possible. Cultural shows are the norm throughout the year. So what can you do? Visit the 1000 Hill Bird Park, the Heritage Market, the Arts and Crafts Village, the Crocodile and Snake Park and the Giba Mountain Bike Park. The names are sort of self explanatory, no?
