South Coast Bed & Breakfast, Self Catering, Hotels & Caravan Parks in Kwazulu Natal on the South Coast, South Africa.
The Oribi Gorge Nature Reserve lies snugly at the head of a spectacular river gorge lined with dense coastal bush and forests Named after the sprightly little antelope that witnessed their arrival, Norwegian settlers were the first to farm this fertile plateau. Completely isolated by the area’s topography, they tried persuading government officials to re-route the proposed inland railway to meet their needs – with no success. Undeterred, these expatriates from the frozen north set about building a road by hand…eventually coercing a subsidy from government, then ‘tricking’ the authorities into fully financing a more functional, wider road.
