The Boston, Dargle and Impendle area is just over an hour’s drive from Durban in the foothills of the Drakensberg Mountains, on the R617 road towards the Southern Drakensberg.
Rolling hills, lush forests, lakes, waterfalls and dams, create an ideal route for those seeking both peace and the thrill of adventure. The villages of Boston and Impendle, and the area of Darlge, are hubs of activity with hiking, walking, fishing, birding, cycling, horse riding and off road motorbike riding and not too far from our area, para and hang-gliding in Bulwer – particularly from the Bulwer Mountain, the Mahwaqa Mountain or ‘the frowning one’ – are huge draw cards to this part of the world.
Originally the stamping ground of San hunter-gathers, who moved freely through the southern Drakensberg, Boer settlers made their way here after 1837 on their Great Trek from the Cape Colony to cross these passes and claim what must have looked like a certain kind of Eden to the weary travellers.
There are over 100 listed bird species that call this region home, three of which – the Wattled Crane, Blue Swallow and Cape Parrot – are on the endangered list. There are only 360 odd breeding pairs of the Cape Parrot still in existence.
