Howick is located in the heart of the Midlands in KwaZulu Natal. Known for its many waterfalls, Howick is a peaceful town ideal for those wishing to escape the city life. Warm summers and cool winters, which can turn chilly when there are snowfalls on the nearby Drakensberg, Howick is a great destination throughout the year.
The most well-known landmark for the town is Howick Falls – the Umgeni River falling approximately 95m over cliffs enroute to the Indian Ocean. If abseiling down the Falls is not your thing, then a beautiful viewing platform is situated above the Falls for some magnificent views.
