Giba Gorge
Environmental Precinct
Is home to a unique complement of rare and threatened ecosystems with an impressive list of animals and plants. The towering slopes, cliffs and gorges were once home to Stone Age people, evidence of which has been unearthed at the Umhlatuzana Rock Shelter


The GGEP is open to the public free of charge. Activities include, walking trails, mountain biking, bird watching or just relaxing and enjoying this tranquil environment.


Conservation Management  is integral to the GGEP’s vision  in order to maintain these areas in a natural state for future generations to enjoy as well as to restore those areas that have already been degraded
Education is another core ambition of the precinct’s vision and plans are afoot to get schools involved in river health studies and other activities.

The GGEP is funded by a cooperative including private and municipal landowners. For more information on how this works visit “ABOUT US”
