Introducing Kloof

Durban's suburb of Kloof is a leafy, middle-to upper class residential part of Durban which includes a smaller area called Everton, in the greater Durban area of eThekwini in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.  The word Kloof which is an Afrikaans word can be translated as 'gorge' and was named after the deep gorge formed by many years of erosion from the Molweni stream.

The Kloof Gorge is part of the 4.47 square kilometers  Krantzkloof Nature Reserve.  Kloof stretches from the top of Field's Hill and borders Winston Park, Gillitts, Forest Hills and Hillcrest.  These suburbs in Durban are collectively known as the Upper Highway Area or the Outer West region of Durban.

The M13 highway intersects Kloof and forms part of the route of the annual Comrades Marathon, an ultra-marathon between Pietermaritzburg and Durban. Kloof also features the Kloof Country Club and a number of exclusive shopping centres.
