Clinton Portis Womens Jersey  Heritage Day Walk to Sibudu Rock Shelter-History/Cultural Studies - Life Long Learning KZN

Heritage Day Walk to Sibudu Rock Shelter

Please click on image to enlarge   The Oldest Bed and the oldest Arrowhead in the world have been found by archaeologists working in a rock shelter above the Tongaat River – see www.sibudu.net for further details.  LLL would like to take you on a journey into this part of Africa where early humans developed tools and techniques that enabled our ancestors to survive on this continent and to migrate from it to other environments. 

This walk led by Derek Nicholson will leave from the Tongaat Hulett secure parking.  A walk through cane fields and through riverside vegetation going west to reach the site. Expect to cross the river at least twice either on stepping stones or by wading (depends when rains come) and then a climb of some 20 metres on rocks to reach the site. Wear suitable footware and bring along a sturdy walking stick for assistance.  Water, hat and sunscreen advised.

Meet before 9 am at the Tongaat Huletts offices off the R614 (Wartburg / Noodesburg Road), see below for directions. The site is not open to the public, but we have AMAFA permission to take walkers there on Heritage Day.  Prior arrangements have been made with Tongaat Hulett for the use of their safe parking area and toilet facilities.    

There is no charge for Students and Scholars (Young children must be accompanied by an adult)
