Full description
The first stop will be a visit to the Leopard's Rock which is set on a rocky incline with sweeping views over the majestic Mzimkhulu River Gorge. You'll then visit the Oribi Gorge Nature Reserve which is a wonderfully scenic area offering excellent hiking opportunities. The wildlife in the Oribi Gorge consists of many antelope, although the oribi (after which the gorge is named) is rarely seen. A photographer's paradise, Oribi Gorge Nature Reserve encompasses forests, rivers, rapids and ravine. High sandstone cliffs dominate this 24 kilometers long gorge carved out by the Umzimkulwana River. Leopards, troops of baboons, various small antelope and a prolific birdlife, including five species of kingfisher and seven species of eagle inhabit the reserve. Activities at Oribi Gorge include the Wild Swing and the Wild Slide. The Wild Swing is one of the most popular big swings in South Africa and the highest in the world. It entails a heart-stopping leap off the top of the waterfall that leaves you swinging more than 100 meters to the gorge below. You can take a walk on the suspension bridge which is 48 meters – a spectacular opportunity to be suspended between heaven and terra firma, as you hover 100 meters above the gorge floor enjoying views of Lehr’s Waterfall, Baboon’s Castle and the World’s Highest Gorge Swing. Professional instructors are available to assist with all activities and the highest safety standards are adhered to. All safety equipment, including full-body harnesses, is provided.

Der absolute Wahnsinn!

Was für ein mega toller Tag... Wir hatten uns viel erhofft,aber das was auf uns zu kam hat alles um weiten getoppt! Angefangen mit dem halt auf einer Zuckerplantage(mit Kostprobe),weiter zu unserem Swing-Abenteuer im Oribi Georg wo der Adrenalinpegel nach oben geschossen ist....bis weiter zum Lake Eland dessen Aussichtsplattform schon alleine die Reise/den Ausflug wert war! Einfach Atemberaubend!! Unser Guide hat uns zwischendurch immer nach unseren Wohlbefinden gefragt und uns viele Details zu den verschiedenen Locations gegeben. Und obwohl in der Beschreibung stand,dass die Eintritte auf eigene kosten sind,hat er alle kosten aus eigener tasche gezahlzt. Schließlich haben wir ihm am Anschluss mit reichlich Trinkgeld belohnt. Doch der Ausflug war jeden Cent wert. Danke auch an das ganze TEAM!! Man merkt,dass diese Leute mit Leidenschaft an der Sache sind! Selbst jetzt zu hause,habe ich immer noch über WhatsApp kontakt zu unserem Guide...Es war mir eine ehre dich kennenlernen zu dürfen
