The area around the inlet of the Mfolozi River into the dam is being developed as an artificial wetland and bird sanctuary. The existing exotic bluegums and wattles are being removed to allow this area to return to its former diverse grassland. Indigenous trees are being established by the Vryheid branch of the Wildlife Society.
