With its beauty and numerous rare and endangered plant and animal species, the nature reserve straddles the Mkomazi River. Dramatic landscapes comprising cliffs and mountain tops, waterfalls and rocky river beds, steep forest clad gulleys, rolling plains, clear star strewn night skies and ethereal morning mists combine to make Highover a magnificent destination.

We welcome visitors and would recommend a tour of the Museums. There is a diary museum, a kitchen museum, and a sewing museum. The main victorian homestead is well worth a visit and house tours are conducted on an appointment basis. The Natal Vintage Tractor and Machinery club have set up their home in the Baynesfield garden and they have a wonderful selection of very interesting tractors, machines, even a steam roller!
