Durban - An elderly couple who went hiking on Sunday at the Umtamvuna Nature Reserve near Port Edward, on the KZN South Coast, and ended up lost were rescued on Monday morning.

According to Glen Preston from emergency services Med-Evac, the couple, aged 60 and 70, had left on Sunday morning to do the 14km hike.

Somewhere along the line they got lost and left the trail and ended up near a waterfall,” said Preston.

He said on Sunday afternoon family members raised the alarm bells about the couple’s disappearance.

“We immediately dispatched our members together with SAPS Search and Rescue.

Yeah happened to me once in the drakensberg. But climbed to the top of the lower mountain and then looked where to go. What was supposed to take 2-3 hours, took 8 hours. Also much more difficult if there is no path.
