Well this weekend was super duper busy and finding fun affordable Outings, is Our Aim!!

A friend got wind that we wanted outdoors , family fun for Our Joe Joe’s Birthday Weekend!!

This is how we got introduced to this gem in Our backyard -Karkloof Falls !!

45 mins from Ashburton into Howick , and then a 13 minute Dirt Road (which is better then some of our tar roads!), we found this gorgeous spot!

3 #KZN Families with loads of kids amongst us unpacked , put the gazebo’s up and pumped those Tubes!!

(pack a pump)!!

I would suggest kids use the toliet’s at home , as these were not clean at all!! We took loo rolls incase!

The general picnic area was clean and bins around for all your litter!! (Maybe pack a black bag)!


(Tube info – Firstly CHECKERS were the most affordable (R30-R60 per tube)… I will say for a bigger Azzie, get a bigger tube because hitting those rocks from below can be tender!!!)

There were also little pools to wallow in and swim.

You cannot see the whole river as there is  a lot of bush and shrubs between picnic area and river!

You will find small little paths down too the river.

Kids and some adults headed up stream and we tubed down.
Water doesn’t flow that fast and you need to stop at 2 exits they have, before a DROP!!

BUT the kids were safe and just keep an adult on patrol at all times (Like any water facility!)

BONUS… it is FREE , but lets make sure we keep it tidy , glass free and unpolluted!!

I felt safe there and we honestly had an amazing time!!


Don’t forget to take your Picture and #Inspiration
