Summary

ACCESS Park at entrance three at the riverside mall. Walk toward the Government Building and take the path behind the building/ fence, by passing the entrance of the building. Take a walk behind the building on the faint path, until you come close to the gate on the otherside of the building. Turn left through the bushes by passing on old pump house. Walk down the path steeply until reaching the river. Turn left. A few minutes walking on the faint path leads to the first route. The access can be quite overgrown and it may be best to contact some locals. Beware of snakes, Black Mamba’s have been seen on the path.

Description

Despite being in the middle of the town the crag has a very wild feel to it Hippos and Crocs have been spotted at the crag
