WATERALL is a suburb of Hillcrest, lying directly north of Kloof and adjacent to Hillcrest and Forest Hills, barely 30 plus kilometres outside of Durban.

And this is the main advantage of a stay in Waterfall - that you are on the outskirts of the city. The other rather obvious one is that one inevitably beats the heat of the city.
In Waterfall, one is far enough from city life to 'escape' it, whilst remaining close enough to the pulse of all one still needs for convenience.
Subsequently, Waterfall functions as a sanctuary without depriving you of creature comforts. The suburb's name indicates the proximity of a body of water which is reinforced by the rather lush, farm-like feel to the area.
Like Kloof there are a lot of trees and subsequently bird life is also abundant. The proximity to Krantzkloof Nature Reserve is an added green belt that gives the area the feel of 'country' living.

A stay in Waterfall, unless you have your sights set on spending time in Durban, will not leave you bereft of plenty to do in the vicinity.
The villages of Kloof and Hillcrest are both worth a visit, and the Midlands Meander is on your doorstep.

Hillcrest in particular has grown from a sleepy little village into a rather a busy suburb of the city. Hence gated communities and modern townhouse complexes overwhelm the former farm-type existence.

If you are looking for an escape, head to Kloof's Botanical gardens, now on the grounds of a lodge for which guided tours are available, or Krantzkloof Nature Reserve, the 530 hectares covered with incredible forest, coastal forest and grasslands where you can see a number of animals and incredible bird life
