The stunning Kamberg Nature Reserve is situated in the uKhahlamba-Drakensberg Park, South Africa’s first cultural and environmental World Heritage Site. It is about 40 km from the village of Rosetta. The reserve nestles in a beautiful remote valley, snugly between Giant’s Castle and the Midlands Meander, a perfect base from which to explore the Drakensberg and the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. 

Pull in for a weekend or a week - enjoy a glass of wine in front of a roaring fire, go see the San paintings, cast a fishing rod, spot some local birds, keep your eyes peeled for the resident otters, admire the waterfalls and wander among the reedbuck, mountain reedbuck, blesbok, black wildebeest, grey rhebok, eland, duiker, red hartebeest and oribi on the slopes of the Kamberg Mountains, said to resemble a rooster’s comb.

Day visitors to the reserve are welcome. Two of the biggest attractions in the area are the Kamberg Trout Festival as well an Outdoor Challenge (Agri Olympics), drawing the local farming community to have some annual outdoor fun.
