The Nyandezulu Experience


Witness the breathtaking scenery of sprawling green hills and valleys high above the sea, while enjoying the finest hospitality of the local Zulu community and homesteads and discovering local arts and crafts.

Start off at the Mfihlo Guest House for either a 5-hour guided drive or walk, with stopovers along the way. Cross the Ntantana Mountain, which overlooks one of the South Coast’s hidden gems, the 80m high Nyandezulu Waterfall, accessed through a short hike. An expansive view and welcome picnic in the shade of a wild fig tree at the traditional “beach” are your rewards. Follow this with an audience with a sangoma or traditional healer or visit a local tavern on the way, for some welcome refreshment.

Continue along the winding scenic route to a Shembe Church at the top of the holy uMdlungwana mountain and then lunch on the banks of a relaxing river.
