There is water in The Clivia Trail

Come Bathe in the Rain

The Mabitsi River runs through The Clivia Trail. With an above average annual rainfall of 1600mm per year, the Mabitsi River occasionally turns into a raging torrent, closing the trail to the public. The trail will generally be open between April and December when this River is more placid and welcoming.

During the summer months, when it drizzles along The Clivia Trail, the walk up the trail, wearing a Macintosh raincoat and galoshes, with the frogs singing, is an enchanting experience.

High canopy rainforests are damp, wet and lush places.
