About Us

A bit of history…Clearwater has been a working farm since 1979.  The Abbott’s established the cabins later in the year 1996 with the intention of exposing the beautiful Umtamvuna Nature Reserve & River Gorge to the visitor. Thereafter, over the following 20 years, the next generation developed the interest of the walking and mountain biking trails on the farm.  The gorge view deck has also become a well frequented “to-do” item in the area. 

Your Hosts

 Jan & Natalie Abbott, the owners & managers the Clearwater Trails are looking forward to your visit.
