eNanda - Rasta Caves and Umzinyathi Falls Tour

Durban

Activity Description

You have the opportunity to meet an authentic Sangoma, an African traditional healer. Make your way to the uMzinyathi Gorge and discover its waterfall and pristine valley vegetation. And when you think you have seen it all, you are stunned by a sacred cliff face cave, which has been used by Rastafarians as a place for their spiritual traditions. On your way down to the Rasta caves you will get a view of the magnificent uMzinyathi waterfall. The path down to the Rasta caves is rocky and when it rains it can be slippery, so it is advised you were proper hiking shoes, the distance however is only about 300m. At arrival you will learn about the Rasatafrian people, their religion as well as view the Rastafarian temple, caves and rock houses (which they live in) as well as ancient Ethiopians writing.

Customer Reviews

It was a wonderful hike, the tour guide was very friendly and provided us with wonderful information. Thank you! - Natalie Silipowicv


We booked through Durban Green Corridor and when we arrived at eNanda Adventure Centre, the information about the booking had not been passed along. This meant that the Rasta community had not been alerted and so there was nobody from the community available to give us information about the Rasta Caves. Having said that, Gabi, the trails manager, was great. He took us down to the Falls and the Caves himself and shared his own knowledge about the sights and the Rasta community. It was a fun afternoon and Gabi certainly made the best of what could have been a bad situation. I would recommend this afternoon out and we will be back to ride the trails after hearing Gabi's infectious excitement about riding there! - Rebecca Sindlall


Hi- Had a lovely experience definitely will be going back and have recommended the place to everyone. Didn’t know we had a gem of a place in our backyard. Although we didn’t meet the Rasta community we still managed to enjoy the hike. Our guide was the best, handled our inquisitive minds with the utmost of love and care. Just one thing that we spoke to the guide about already- the directions need improving. I am a local and still managed to get lost. Only downside was that we were informed on the day that we would have to use our car- and the road to the Caves is not for the car we had. - Thandeka Nkosi


I thoroughly enjoyed my experience on my tour of Inanda. The Mzinyathi Falls are beautiful and it was fascinating chatting to the Rastafarians. My guide Sanele was particularly informative and made the experience richer by informing me about the cultural aspects of life in Inanda past and present. I am keen to return and learn more. - Carmen de Lange


I had a great time! The guide was very knowledgeable, experienced and friendly. I would definitely recommend this to family and friends. - Noluthando Sibiya
