Idwala Adventures

Did you know there’s a newly opened rock climbing building right here at Lake Umuzi! Located at South Bank, across from Action Sports, you will find the excitingly, skew building with the mountainous design painted across the walls. This is Idwala Adventures, and your new favourite exercise spot.

The colder weather is ideal for this sport, as there is more friction in the cold, which gives you better grip on the ropes and shoes. Your body will also lose less water, reducing the need to rehydrate as frequently.

Idwala Adventures is open during the week from 17h00 to 21h00, and from 10h00 to 17h00 on Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays.

Want to host your kid’s birthday party at Idwala? Contact them and let them host the most rocking party ever!

As the leaves are changing colour, so do our souls and what we require. Kamp Oase is the place to spend your autumn weekends.

Spend your nights huddled up next to the fire and witness the eerie mist hovering over the streams and lakes surrounding the campsite. Along with the beautiful scenery, one can expect spacious, clean and easy to use ablutions with warm water, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a designated braai stand at each stand, a colourful jungle gym for the kids, and electricity at each stand.

The campground is located right next to Idwala Adventures, where the kids can come and enjoy a climb while the adults enjoy a dop on the stoep overlooking their campsite. Within walking distance from Kamp Oase is The Lake Umuzi Waterfront, with lots of activities for the younger generation, such as putt-putt, AquaZone Waterpark, and a spa for the tired parents in need of some pampering.
