Howick - South Africa

Attractions in Howick

Howick lies on the Midlands Meander in KwaZulu Natal South Africa. The main attraction in Howick is the Howick Falls. The Howick falls are easily accessible for anyone falling some 90 m and the view from the top is definitely impressive. For those of you a bit more energetic Howick offers some worthwhile short trails to the bottom of the Howick Falls. The Howick town itself offers a good selection of antiques, arts and crafts.

Hikes and Trails in Howick 

Howick Falls Gorge Walk: Start this interesting walk through the thick undergrowth on the stone steps from the Howick Falls Gorge Walk sign at the bottom of Harvard Street and wind your way down to the pool, at the bottom of the Falls. You will meet up with the trickling Karkloof Spruit and see it meet the Umgeni River on your way to the base of the Howick Falls. The walk there and back takes a leisurely hour or two, returning along the same path to the start. Trail guides can be arranged! 

Umgeni River Trail: Try this one out in dry weather only - it starts at the Howick Scout Hall (off Plane Crescent - in the Greendale Park area of Howick) and winds along the Umgeni River past the Mills Falls area, to just beyond the Umgeni Gardens Flats in Oakleigh Drive where the trail ends. This one will take you roughly an hour.

Beacon Hill Trail: This walk starts from the clearing at the end of Lakeview Road (near the Curry's Post road turn-off) and turns right, past the Howick reservoir, going up Beacon Hill - and over the top. Thereafter it follows the timber-line to the left, around the perimeter of the hill returning to the clearing at the start. The walk will take you about an hour - but pausing to take in the great view might draw things out a bit!
