Situated on 28 acres over the Nkutu Valley in the Kloof area of KwaZulu Natal. The centre offers a nurturing day retreat venue in tropical surroundings with views and walks through the indigenous rolling landscapes of the preserved natural environment.


The Waterfall Retreat & Environmental Centre is committed to

Deepening our understanding of the mind

Preserving the wildlife and indigenous environment of the Nkutu Nature Reserve



The practice of mindful awareness is at the heart of all the activities at the retreat. The centre hosts a variety of gentle day retreats and Mindfulness Association study opportunities for all students from diverse backgrounds with a willingness to develop their own practice. Through creating a nurturing space for the practice of mindfulness we hope to deepen our understanding of the mind. The centre also provides a venue for visiting facilitators both local and international.

We are also the venue for The Samye Dharma Pratice Group of the Karma Kagyu Lineage in Durban.
