Obviously your particular interests will determine your activities and the time
spent - some people could spend the whole day at the Museum whereas walking
passed it is enough for others! There are also those activities that need no
introduction - like a game of golf, tennis or bowls or just sitting in a deck
chair at the lake with a book for a few hours. Here follow a few suggestions and
contact details where possible.

Mhlopeni Nature Reserve is situated 25Km.s from Greytown on
the road to Muden (or Weenen).
Begun as a private initiative for land rehabilitation, it
is now a Natural Heritage site (No. 223) as it provides habitat for a number
of Red Data species of mammals, birds, reptiles and insects. 3 rare
butterflies are endemic and there are good stands of the Tugela milkwood tree Vitellariopsis
dispar which has an extremely limited
distribution in the scenic Tugela valley. Click
here for a list of butterflies positively identified
by Clive Quickelberge, Scientific Officer forDurban Natural Science Museum.
For those interested in archaeology, there are several
sites, from early stone age to late iron age and research by Natal Museum is
on-going. A stone crucible used for smelting brass predates the arrival of Jan
van Riebeeck at the Cape and is the only complete one of its kind ever found
in KZN to date, offering a fascinating glimpse into pre-colonial history.
Accommodation is provided in three rustic bushcamps on a
self-cater basis, set under shady trees beside the Mhlopeni stream. Game
viewing is on foot. All visitors are welcome, but must book in advance,
