General Information

Howick It is known as the home of many waterfalls for it is here that the uMngeni River and its tributaries tumble down gorges and over precipices on a journey to the Indian Ocean, some 95 km to the east. Some of the key villages found in the vicinity of Howick are Karkloof, Merrivale and Lion's River. it enjoys warm summers and cold chilly winters when snow falls on the nearby Drakensberg.

The Howick Falls, known to the Zulu people as KwaNogqaza - Place of the Tall One, is approximately 100 metres of spectacular display almost in the centre of the picturesque town itself. Experience first-hand why the falls are revered by sangomas (Zulu traditional healers) and begin to understand why the cascade is believed to be inhabited by powerful ancestral spirits.

As transport riders and wagon trains pioneered routes inland from the coast, these European adventurers the early 19th Century were the first ones to notice the falls. James Archbell, who was an English missionary, was granted a farm here, but the rapid increase in horse-drawn traffic soon compelled the government of the day to expropriate a portion for the establishment of a village. This settlement was duly named Howick, in honour to the Northumberland home of then British Colonial Secretary, Earl Grey.

Our 'Waterfall Country' is filled with opportunities to engage in activities synonymous with genteel, bucolic living - fishing expeditions par none on our bountiful waters, bird-watching and game-viewing amid a nature lover's dream, the equestrian pursuits and golfing challenges introduced by our Colonial forefathers, plus a modern addition to the world of keep-fit regimes - mountain biking.

Accommodation to suit every pocket and predilection makes our hospitality the ideal base for exploring further afield. These 'meanders' traverse undulating countryside dotted with yet more arts 'n' crafts, nature reserves and trails, outdoor sporting and recreation venues, historic sites, quaint restaurants, inns and B&B establishments plus, of course, more waterfalls!
