Conservation in Umdoni Park

Umdoni Park consists of 210 hectares of Kwazulu Natal’s Southern countryside and derives its name from the water-loving Umdoni trees scattered throughout the estate.

The Umdoni Park Trust was set up in 1920 not only to maintain the golf course and the buildings on the Park but also to preserve the wilderness area.

This involves an ongoing fight against poaching and an apparently never-ending battle against invasive alien vegetation.

While accepting that conservation of the environment is central to our role, the Trust is keen to play an educational role as well and to this end employs an environmental officer who is available to take guided walks around the park and to give talks and demonstrations to schoolchildren and adult parties.
