Upmarket homes, leafy gardens and trendy malls overlook an evergreen forested ravine flanked by steep cliffs. This describes the suburb of Kloof in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal Province.
Kloof is a well-established suburb, accommodating some of the finest schools and colleges in the country. The suburb encompasses the Krantzkloof Nature Reserve and the Molweni and Nkutu river catchment areas.
Kloof lies in a subtropical zone, however, it is 550m above sea level and has lower humidity levels than the coastal towns. It’s the kind of place that will have you wondering whether you would like to make your stay a permanent one.
