2021 is the 70th anniversary of the iconic Dusi Canoe Marathon and it will be a very different race. Covid-19 regulations mean no spectators, no registration or prize giving, no social events this year.

However the Umgeni Steam Railway has trips over the Dusi weekend: Sat 20 March @ 12.30am and Sunday 21 March @ 8.30am and 12.30pm departing from and returning to Stokers Arms in Kloof with a stop at Inchanga Station which hosts the community market.
