Good place to visit while in Howick. Nice to walk to to stretch your legs and see the falls, the beauty of the place and do some light shopping from the stalls in the area.

Beautiful and so peaceful

What a stunning place. I would have thought the the tourism board would have kept this place looking appetising to visit.
Hopefully the municipality of Howick will realise what a lovely tourist attraction they have

Howick Falls offered a beautiful view...
Nov 2020 • Family
The viewing platform for Howick Falls was clean and offered a beautiful view of the Falls itself.
It was highly disappointing trying to get access to the viewing platform in terms of parking a bit closer in order to assist those with limited mobility/elderly. The closest parking is about 150m away.
Upon asking for any alternative or assistance at Howick Tourist Info Centre - we were greeted with the most unprofessional and rude manners. This unfortunately tainted the whole experience...
Overall, the surrounding also needs some TLC.

Nature's beauty
Oct 2020
It was a rainy day and we decided to stop and see the Howick Falls.

One of the few places that is still free to view.

Fortunately there were not a lot of hawkers and it made it quick to view.

Really beautiful.

Wheelchair access denied
Oct 2020
The visit was overcast due to the fact that we could not drive closer to the falls due to the area being 'sanitized' We could not even get the falls by pushing a wheelchair due to large rocks blocking the road. This was very very disappointing and a loss of income for all the stall holders at the area.

May have been a treat in the past, but a little sad today -sorry. Needs a lot of tender loving care to revive this attraction.

There wasn't that much water. Not the best fall I've seen. Good for just a quick photo stop if one has time to spare.

At the heart of the town...
Mar 2020
Howick Falls, at the heart of the town of Howick, plenty of free parking next to the falls area and opposite the market stalls.
We visited in the first part of the morning(advised by different local people en route) and had no hassles. There was a local resident who gave some insight into local history, the falls and the do's and don't, some good general safe advice.
The falls themselves looked radiant, in good flow, the panoramic viewing platform brings this place into the realm of beauty, grand views beyond.
Friendly local people making their way in life at the market stalls, just be careful wandering off beyond...
The very best part of the town, no doubt.

A beautiful fall in a degraded environment
Dec 2019
I used to love visiting Howick Falls. They are spectacular. Unfortunately, the area surrounding them has been degraded through neglect. I appreciate the curio sellers, but the number of people who use this space for loud music and picnics--with no regard for others--is upsetting. They definitely spoil the experience.

This is a spectacular waterfall along the Umngeni river which has cut deep through the rock strata over thousands of years. The flow seems to be constant even though the river looks to flow gently. A viewing platform has been provided for photography.
Photoshop may be necessary to deal with figures and washing drying at the precipice. Do take care of valuables in the area.
