Lions River is a rural town in the center of the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands. It is situated between Lidgetton and Howick. The name originates from the last lion which was shot in the area in 1856.
The area is well known for farming, particularly dairy. The Trading Post in Lions River is worth paying a visit. The building was once a water-driven turbine sawmill and has been transformed into a charming antiques and collectibles store.
The area has many mountain bike routes around the Lions River Valley and is not far from the Howick cycling routes as well as the Karkloof mountain bike trails.
Close by you will find the inspiring Mandela Capture Site and Apartheid Museum. The neighboring town of Howick is only ten minutes away and offers visitors a variety of restaurants, pubs, shops, and the mighty Howick Falls.
