The Mtentu Gorge is spectacular. Take a hike up the side of the gorge on the Mtentu Village side of the river. The hike is approximately 13 kms round trip and is well worth the effort. Visit the viewpoint from which you can see king fish, sharks and turtles in the estuary. See where Leopards falls leaps down into the river below. The highlight of the walk is at the top of Phushungwana Falls. Hang over the edge and watch as the water falls through the crevasse onto the rocks below.
