“Hiking and camping just North of Ballito”

Harold Johnson Nature Reserve
Ranked #3 of 4 things to do in Stanger
Attraction details
Reviewed 26 May 2013

We were looking for a place fairly close to home to go for a good walk / hike.
I found the Harold Johnson Reserve on the KZN Parks site. The facilities are failry simple but clean and tidy.
We did the 5km Bushbuck Trail - and we were pleasantly suprised. The trail rolls up and down the hills above the Tugela River - on our walk we saw Zebra, Impala and lots of pretty butterflies. The trail took us about 90 minutes to complete - we are fairly fit so it may take up to 2 hrs depending on your fitness.
The camping sites are rustic but really look quite nice if this is your thing - particularly the one on top of the hill overlooking the valley and river below.
It was a good choice for a good walk out in the bush so close to home - and you will only see a few other people here which is enjoyable too.
