The pleasant drive on the R617 from Howick on a winding country road leads you to "The Hidden Valley of Beauty" accommodation in Karkloof and the surrounds.

Numerous craft outlets dot the Karkloof countryside, where visitors can purchase anything from expertly crafted, handmade leather sandals and sheepskin slippers to exquisitely decorated pottery or even a hammock.

With a bit of luck, while in the Karkloof area, you will spot the fragilely beautiful Butler Butterfly, endemic to KwaZulu Natal and found only in the Karkloof region. This rare Karkloof butterfly was chosen as the emblem of the Natal Midlands Meander Association which is a tourist initiative co-ordinating the more than 100 Natal Midlands craft outlets and home industries open to the public on a route which includes the Karkloof Valley.

Many of South Africa's Polo players either originate, or are trained here and Karkloof polo fields have seen many a South African polo player reaching Springbok status.

The Karkloof Canopy Tour was a feat of engineering to set up in this hilly and wooded terrain. Starting with an open jeep drive to a high point in the Karkloof valley and descending, via a series of foefie slides, through the treetops, the hour long tour ends with a short walk to where refreshment is waiting.

The Karkloof Canopy tours are probably one of the reasons for the demand for school group self catering accommodation or large church group accommodation in Karkloof. Farm accommodation in Karkloof makes up the majority of popular group accommodation in Karkloof and the surrounding area.

Accommodation in the Karkloof Nature Reserve also attracts much interest but those seeking rustic and affordable accommodation for School Groups or Church group holidays in Karkloof will be more successful in the surrounding Midlands.
