Albert Falls Dam and Nature Reserve is located only 30 minutes from Pietermaritzburg. The area around the Albert Falls Dam is filled with secluded nature trails and picnic spots, and was established in 1975. This dam is rated one of the best bass fishing dams in the world. The land here comprises tracts of mixed woodland, open grassland and small marsh areas, and in the wet seasons birdlife is abundant and includes widows, weavers, waxbills and cisticolas. Wildlife in the reserve includes zebra, numerous buck such as the springbok, the red hartebeest, and oribi, rhino and giraffe.

Albert Falls also offers water-skiing, sailing, canoeing, nature trails, fishing, bird watching and game viewing. Take a break in fully equipped self-catering rondavels and chalets set in the Notuli Game Park. An area known as the Albert Falls Amble has fittingly chosen the Fish Eagle, whose unique cry punctuates the area, as its emblem and is an arts and crafts route that extends from Albert Falls to Wartburg, Dalton and New Hanover. It has a wonderful selection of crafts, pubs and a number of private game reserves.
