Take a drive 35 kilometres west of Durban en route between Hillcrest and Kloof and you will find the lush, green suburb of Gillitts. The climate is temperate and the serene atmosphere that conceals the town from the buzz of urban life makes it an ideal holiday retreat. Located 550m above sea level the town enjoys a breather away from the typical coastal humidity of the region. The rural setting of sloping green hills and clean air gives you a taste of country charm at its best. The town is also near to many leisure and recreational activities as well as ample accommodation to suit all pockets. From top of the industry guesthouses to cost self-catering cottages your stay in Gillitts is assured to be well catered for. Take the note that during the Dusi Canoe Race or Comrades Marathon visiting spectators flock to the town, so it is advisable to book your stay in good time!
Unlike other neighbouring towns Gillitts has not experienced comparable growth, possibly because there is little room for further development. This allows it to retain its rural charm so that visitor’s can enjoy the rare joy of small-town peace and quiet. The renowned Valley of 1000 Hills is just a stone’s throw away. Those with cultural interests can visit a traditional Zulu village for a flavour of local dance, art and food. Nearby dams such as the Shongweni and Inanda make for a diversity of water sports and activities such as canoeing, fishing, waterskiing and windsurfing. Land-lovers can enjoy a horse-riding trail, a game viewing tour or a round of golf on the golfing ranges and reserves in close proximity to the town of Gillitts. Other attractions in the locality worth mentioning are various museums and places of interest, such as the Marianhill Monastery, the Heritage Theatre and the Pinetown Museum.
