The Oribi Gorge – a place of echoes – was created over millions of years as the Umzimkhulwana river carved its way over flat rock, finding faults in the stone and eroding enormously deep and narrow gorges. At the base of the cliffs there are rocks that are over 100 million years old.
There is beauty wherever your eyes rest, but you can
look forward to highlights such as:
1. The Overhanging Rock
2. The Chimney
3. Camel Rock
4. The Needle
5. Baboon’s Castle
6. Lehr’s Waterfall
7. The Heads
8. Lovers’ Leap
New! Suspension Bridge (84 meters)
A spectacular opportunity to be suspended between
heaven and terra firma, as you hover 100m above the
Gorge floor enjoying views never before seen of Lehr’s
Waterfall, Baboons Castle and the World’s Highest
The above sites are all located on the Oribi Gorge Hotel property. All sites are accessible by dirt road, with the exception of the Heads, which can be accessed on horseback.
