Day hike somewhere between Johannesburg and Durban

Hi all
My husband is going to drive from Johannesburg to Durban next week for business and would like to stop along the way for a hike of several hours. Can you suggest any places that would be pretty accessible? He's in great shape, and an experienced hiker. We live in Virginia-so have no knowledge of the area at all.
Thanks!

Assuming an overnight stay? The drive is pretty long, so it plus a "several hours" hike is probably not practical in a day.

That said, we visited Cathedral Peak a few years ago - absolutely stunning country, not that far from the N3 freeway (maybe an 60-80 min) through gorgeous country. The Cathedral Peak Hotel is quite comfortable. http://www.cathedralpeak.co.za/

Hi again everyone
So I got it a bit wrong-he's actually driving from Durban to Johannesburg... And he'll have half a day for hiking, stay overnight there, and then have most of the next day before driving on. Is there any chance at all with a schedule like that that he could see any animals? Maybe a game park?
Thanks again!
