About Us

Umdoni Park, a sanctuary named after the Umdoni tree, was established by Sir Frank Reynolds and presented to the nation in 1920 to preserve the indigenous fauna and flora and the Umdoni Park Trust was formed.

Today, the Park offers wonderful walking trails, excellent birding and the Komba Bird Sanctuary and Nkumbane Dam, which are perfect for appreciating the profusion of fauna to be enjoyed in this part of the world. And if you are into indigenous plants, take a stroll through the local Indigenous Nursery to see the beautiful plants and birds native to South Africa. The Trust works in close association with the Pennington Conservancy with regard to matters of conservation.
