A short easy walk to a lookout over the gorge and waterfall. Unfortunately there are big bars around the lookout which detracted from the view. Path a bit slippery in the rain. Lots of people trying to sell souvenirs at the car park. There is...More

Short walk to the falls, but amazing view once you get there. You may have to stick your camera or phone through the green fence for a proper shot thou. Minimal entry fee, just R10 a car. Nice little suvenirs can be bought from the...More

We were near by and stopped to watch the fall which is a quick 300m walk from the parking. The fall is nice, and the market near the parking is also nice. Stop if in the area.

Beautiful fall. Gorgeous to see. The sound of the fall is so peaceful. Nice local arts and curio stalls with affordable pricing.

As with the other waterfalls on this spectacular route there is a minimal charge to see the waterfall. This has an impressive drop and the overhanging viewing platform makes you feel part of it. The surrounding cliffs are steep and beautiful. We visited in the...More
