  • Oribi Gorge Hotel

    I unfortunately have to give this one a special tip as the best part of the Oribi gorge is to be seen from the hotel property. The cost is R25 to go in. The roads are not so hot, but you can do it with a normal sedan motorcar. From here you can see the camel rock, the chimney and many more.

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sitting at this restaurant you have a wonderful view over the banana plantations. The waitrons are friendly and the pancakes are humungous and extremely deliscious

    Favorite Dish: Banana & Caramel pancake

    The wild swing: The highest gorge swing in the world! Plummet 33 storeys (100m) into the gaping abyss of the Oribi Gorge - an experience that will leave you exhilarated or in my case probably dead (hate hights)
    You can also enjoy The wild slide, abseiling. white river rafting or horse riding

    Equipment: all provided

    Favorite thing: The best part of Margate is its beautiful beach. It is very well kept, and has been awarded Blue Flag status.

    If you are looking for anything else in Margate, accomodation or businesses, you will do well to visit:

    shelly.co.za

    It a very good site for information about Hibiscus Coast (incuding Margate), and all the local businesses and accomodation is on this site too.

    Fondest memory: My best memories of Margate are all the fun I had at Backline night club, and on Margate beach too.

    New years eve in Margate is the best place to be!
