The Molweni area between KwaDabeka and the Inanda Dam wall is one of the most pristine stretches of the uMngeni river and an incredible birding and ecotourism experience.
The self-drive Finfoot Loop, which can also be led by a local nature guide, takes nature-lovers along the uMngeni River below the eNanda Dam, through rural river gorges and spectacular cliffs.
This is one of the best ways to spot the rare and elusive African Finfoot, a species highly sought after by birders to add to their “life lists”. Other species such as the Gorgeous Bushshrike, various raptors and many more are popular finds on the tour.
