Howick is a town located in the uMgungundlovu District of KwaZulu-Natal Province, South Africa. The town is 1050 m above sea level, and about 88 kilometres from the port city of Durban. It enjoys warm summers and cool dry winters. A snappy chill descends upon Howick when snow falls on the nearby Drakensberg. The town is located on the N3 freeway, connecting it with the rest of South Africa.

The town is the location of Howick Falls, which is a large waterfall that occurs when the Umgeni River falls 95 metres (311 feet) over dolerite cliffs on its way to the Indian Ocean. The waterfall was known as kwaNogqaza or "The Place of the Tall One" by the original Zulu inhabitants. There are several other waterfalls in the vicinity and all of them have claimed human lives. Near Howick are Cascade Falls (25 m) and Shelter Falls (37 m), while Karkloof Falls (105 m) is 16 km to the east.

Mooi River is a small town situated at 1,389m above sea level and 160 km from the coast in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. The first European settlement in the area was at Mooi River Drift in 1852. This was formally named Weston in 1866 after the first Governor of Natal, Martin West. In 1879, an Irishman named Alexander Lawrence purchased the farm "Grantleigh" upstream from Weston, on the banks of the Mooi River. "Mooirivier" is Afrikaans for "beautiful river". In 1884, the railway line from Durban, on the coast, to Johannesburg, in the interior, reached the area and was built across Alexander Lawrence's land. He subsequently laid out and establish the village of Lawrenceville on his farm "Grantleigh" and so is known as "The Father of Mooi River". In 1921, the village was renamed Mooi River when it was declared a town. It lies on the principal road N3 and rail routes between Johannesburg and Durban. Although the railway-station is no longer used for passengers, goods are still carried. There is a toll plaza located at Mooi River.

Antbear Drakensberg Lodge
Antbear Drakensberg Lodge, Bed & Breakfast, MOOI RIVER
The Antbear Drakensberg Lodge, originally built in the 1940's and recently restored by sculptor Bruce Attwood, gets its name from the previous resident, who lived beneath the floor boards before restoration.  Eccentrically refurbished using wood gathered in the surrounding valleys, the Antbear combines comfort with a unique environment.  Using a fifty-year-old outhouse for the basic framework, Bruce created a unique guest-house and home in the rural hinterland of Kwazulu-Natal. The original structure which belonged to a farmer friend, consisted of two traditional rondavels, or thatch covered huts, connected by a stoep, or veranda wit an overhead trellis. Perched on a kind of natural platform overlooking the bushmans river, the house has panoramic views of the Drakensberg Mountains.  Relax, enjoy the view, take walks around the farm and savor the delicious food prepared by Andrew and Conny.
