eNanda – Rasta Caves and Umzinyathi Falls Tour

A guide shows travellers the way to the uMzinyathi Gorge to discover its waterfall and pristine valley vegetation. And when they think they have seen it all, they take a hike down into the steep gorge where they will be stunned by a sacred cliff face cave, which has been used by Rastafarians as a place for their spiritual traditions.

On the way down to the Rasta caves visitors get a view of the magnificent uMzinyathi waterfall. Visitors learn about the Rastafarian people, their religion as well as viewing the Rastafarian temple, caves and rock houses (which they live in) as well as ancient Ethiopian writing.
