For those who crave that “out in the wilds” type picnic / braai spot, there’s nowhere better. The top falls are majestic and the bottom falls are serene (though incredibly dangerous - don’t even think of trying a slide...!!). Even if not staying long, it’s...More

The waterfall provided a beautiful escape, hidden away in the beautiful hills of Magoebaskloof. With plenty of picnic spots for a relaxing day listening to the sound of nature and soothing water. It was a beautiful experience. Limpopo is beautiful guys!!!

We came here to find a Tzaneen gem. It was an easy drive to get there, with parking very close to the actual waterfall. The waterfall is beautiful, as expected! It is enclosed so swimming is not allowed. The rest of the area is surrounded...More

It’s a nice and beautiful location to take a break or do a pick nick but aside from that, do not expect to much.

The Debengeni Falls are a beautiful sight for any holidaymaker to see. You can spend a calm afternoon there with your picnic or braai (barbecue), or you can seek adventure by hiking along the waterfall, swimming in the pools, and traversing the rocks (all at...More

The gravel road from the R71 to the site is lengthy and a SUV and/or AWD vehicle will make for a comfortable ride. We paid R10 per person and R10 per vehicle at the entrance to the site. The drive to the parking area down...More
