Obviously seeing a waterfall at such scale is always amazing. The stalls nearby are always a must to walk past and have a look, the owners are all very friendly. Preferably go on a Sunny day.
Ps: Don't call any number for 'a trip to the bottom' it's setting you up for an unpleasant experience.

It truly is a great waterfall. The viewpoint is great and there are plenty of opportunities for family photos. The place is fairly well maintained. Lots of interesting flea market stalls to buy souvenirs from.

Mesmerizing and great gushing waterfall. Being so close to the top of the falls offers a stunning view 1st time I witnessed it so full obviously after all the recent rains even the river was flowing very rapidly. The area is fairly quite and not much else happening. The parking area was closed off so had to park on the off street parking and do a short walk to catch the glimpse of the falls. Few vendors selling souvenirs. But one should excersie caution as I think it can be a bit risky to venture on your own.

We visited Howick Falls Today. It was such a disappointment. Litter everywhere. The trial that u can take to the bottom of the falls was not well taken care off. There was no information centre. No guards anywhere. It looked neglected and unkempt. I visited about 20 years ago and it has just gone so so bad and so quiet. For South Africa if its quiet its not safe unfortunately

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
