“Great outdoor location so close to Durban. Great mountain biking tracks and horse riding trails”
Reviewed 20 July 2012

Being so close to Durban, what an excellent place to spend a few hours. The mountain bike tracks cater for all levels and there is even a horse trail for the adventurous. Great for families.

“Great family day out”
Reviewed 16 July 2012

Within easy reach of Durban, Giba Gorge is a great mountain and bmx park for the family. The entry fees are reasonable and their Cafe Giba serves an interesting quirky menu with excellent pizzas and fresh squeezed vegetable and fruit juices, smoothies and thick milkshakes. The wraps are full of fresh salad and burgers are delicious! I enjoyed the lamb burger with hummus and chutney, my 11 year old had the falafel wrap and the other child enjoyed the slow roasted lamb pizza with hummus which was excellent (I did steal a slice!), the homemade tomato sauce makes the pizza.

The cafe seating includes some VERY comfy lounges that are very inviting on a Sunday morning with the paper while the kids are off burning serious energy!

The whole family can go for a bike ride to the waterfall or send the kids with a guide for a 2km adventure while you kick back in the cafe! There are also picnic facilities and its a popular spot for kids birthday parties. Friendly efficient service can be expected.

There is also a cute gift boutique with an interesting range of goods for sale and an organic store and nursery on the same premises.
