The Oribi Gorge – a place of echoes – was created over millions of years as the Umzimkhulwana River carved its way over flat rock, finding faults in the stone and eroding enormously deep and narrow gorges.

Enjoy a gentle hike to the various view sites or a more strenuous climb (down a rocky climbing path) to the bottom of the Gorge. Mountain bikers can follow the scenic single track (horse trail), meandering along the top of the gorge.
