ACCOMMODATION IN HOWICK
This pretty town almost totally surrounds the spectacular 100m-high waterfall of the same name. Years ago there was a ford across the Mgeni River just above the falls and a number of people who lost their footing were unfortunately swept over the falls to their deaths. Nowadays you can abseil down the falls to the pool below. There is a monument just outside the town marking the spot where Nelson Mandela was arrested in 1962. There are two golf courses near the town.
