Karkloof Nature Reserve and the Karkloof falls make this reg

Karkloof nature reserve and the Karkloof falls are situated on the east side of the Midlands Meander. The first white settlers found this beautiful area of Karkloof virtually empty...abandoned first by the ancient San hunter-gatherers in response to encroaching black tribes, then by these same black tribes as King Shaka carved out and expanded his Zulu Empire.

During the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879, a church which was built 16 years earlier served as a fort and remains surrounded by settler graves. So Karkloof has some hiostoric tales to tell too. But as far as tourism is concerned its the Karkloof falls that really make this region a must on any visit to the Natal Midlands.
