Mfolozi Headwaters
DID YOU KNOW?

The Black Mfolozi River is one of South Africa's flagship rivers. The largest user of water in the area is the irrigation sector, predominantly sugarcane, and forestry. Coal fields in Vryheid are located within the Mfolozi headwaters and place considerable pressure on the ecological and hydrological functioning of this Water Source Area. This area loses more 2.5% of its water to invasive alien trees.

  • Area: 1 925km2
  • 7% protected, including three Ramsar sites, Kosi Bay, Lake Sibaya and St Lucia.
