Escape to Ivala

Ivala is well known for fly fishing for yellow fish and is widely advertised in the ‘Complete Fly Fisherman’ magazine. Bait fishing is allowed for carp and barbel and we promote catch and release.

Bird and Butterfly watching
Avid birdwatchers will enjoy the birdlife which includes Hoopoe, Kingfisher, Hammerkop and more. In early spring butterflies form a colorful canopy over the bougainvillea bushes.
Game Drives
Thukela Game Ranch is only minutes away and offers game drives. Animals that can be spotted include Elephant, Rhino, Giraffe, Zebra and a range of buck.

Quad Biking
Not for the faint hearted, Imbabala Lodge offers quad biking and is also only a few minutes from Ivala.

Battlefields Route
Feed your inner historian by embarking on a route to some of the most significant battles fought on South African soil.

Beware of the Crocodiles!

Contrary to popular belief there are a few resident crocs mosing around the Mooi River so please be aware. Leave them be and they won't bother you, just be careful at the waters edge.
