Umgeni Valley Centre

Situated 1km from Howick and downstream of the iconic Howick Falls, the 900 hectare Umgeni Valley Nature Reserve has grown to be one of the largest non-governmental environmental education projects in South Africa, with thousands of students participating in courses each year, both within South Africa and abroad.  WESSA launched the Umgeni Valley Project in 1976 and established its then national headquarters at the Umgeni Valley Nature Reserve. This was in response to the world-wide appeal for increased knowledge and awareness of our total environment and a more caring attitude to it.

The reserve is open daily:

Summer:  6am - 7pm
Winter:  6am - 6pm
