The Horse Shoe Falls are very pretty and the short walk to see them is worthwhile. There is also nice lawns to sit and have a picnic, should you want to.

We visited all of the falls in and around Sabie they are all worthy seeing - just be aware that the entry fee is no longer per car but per person. This has annoyed a number of visitors who have publically complained.
