River Valley Nature Reserve is situated in a picturesque section of the iVungu River which meanders down through a valley of hills into the Indian Ocean at the well known South Coast Beach of  Uvongo Beach, where the river flows over the Uvongo falls.

It is a small reminder of the once untouched natural coastline with it’s varied ecosystems consisting of grassland, riverine and coastal forest.

Birdlife is abundant. Antelope such as Nyala, Impala, Bushbuck, and Blue and Grey Duiker can be seen and if you are fortunate you might be able to get a sighting of the Cape Clawless Otter that frequent the reserve.
