504 – River Valley Nature Reserve

River Valley Nature Reserve, Portal Avenue, Margate, South Africa


083 263 5537

River Valley Nature Reserve is one of the few remaining privately owned and family run pockets of natural habitat on the KwaZulu- Natal South Coast.

The reserve falls within a horseshoe of a picturesque section of the iVungu River which meanders down through a valley of hills into the Indian Ocean at the well known Uvongo Beach, where one finds the iVungu falls. It is a small reminder of the once untouched natural coastline with it???s varied ecosystems consisting of grassland, riverine and coastal forest.

Abundant birdlife including the Narina Trogon, African Finfoot, Crowned eagle, Knysna Turaco, Olive Woodpecker and over 145 species of birds inhabit the area. Antelope such as Nyala, Impala, Bushbuck, and Blue and Grey Duiker can be seen and if you are fortunate you might be able to get a sighting of the Cape Clawless Otter that frequent the reserve.

We offer two upmarket self -catering cottages, a small private campsite, walking trails through the reserve and a picnic area. The reserve borders the Margate Golf Course and is close to the main south coast beaches and shopping centers yet peacefully out of the hustle and bustle of town.
