LAST month we introduced you to the main Kloof Falls but there are a number of other falls which are easily accessible and worth a visit. The Nkutu Upper Falls are easily accessible from the Nkutu Picnic site at the bottom of Valley Drive in Forest Hills. This picnic site is an ideal venue for a family gathering with its large lawn area and picnic spots with tree shade. It is also much quieter than the main Kloof Falls Picnic site. After a few minutes the path turns right and you start the short descent to the bottom of the Nkutu Gorge. On the way down take note of the Rock Hyrax (Dassies) middens which are located on the ledges. Rock Hyrax are common in Krantzkloof Nature Reserve. Hyrax struggle to regulate their body-temperature so are often found basking in the sun. Strange but true, the closest living relatives of the hyraxes are the modern-day elephants!
