WORLD-RENOWNED ROCK CLIMBING AT SHONGWENI DAM


Just 40km from the bustling heart of Durban, you can tackle world-renowned rock climbs in a dramatically beautiful bushveld reserve Dam and Game Reserve – thanks to the sandstone cliffs through which the river has scored its path for many millions of years.

As well as excellent walls to scale, wind and weather have also helped erode the cliffs to create some of the finest and most challenging overhangs.

Two of the best have been named The Wave Cave and The Rasta Cave. According to the different international systems, they’ve been rated in the 30s (SA); 5.13 (USA); and 8 (France).

Here’s what climber Roger Nattrass had to say when he first tackled the rock climbs at Shongweni Dam and Game Reserve:

  • “The most awe-inspiring piece of rock in KwaZulu-Natal.”
  • “This is a rock for the year 2000 and beyond!”
  • “Super steep and immaculately clean rock.”
