IF the weather is CLEAR, this is one of those places you must visit: the view is stunning and the little park presents the history very well. Of course, beware of the pot holes in the road...

Good views and lovely panorama over Pietermaritzburg. That’s about it, really. Couldn’t spend more that’s a hour here unless you want to risk a picnic

A lovely scenic drive up Old Howick Road to get to this site. However, once there, the littered surroundings and overgrown vegetation negatively impact on an otherwise great view of the city.

Quite how TripAdvisor can recommend this place is beyond me. It's dangerous. Used to be a great place for historical reasons as one can see the tracks made by the Voortrekker wagons but no one should visit there these days
