You must pay to enter at the top of the hill and drive to the bottom on a rough track before a short walk to the falls. The falls are lovely but made the mistake of going on a hot Sunday, very crowded. But what...More

Debengeni Falls is easy to access, also for people who are not well at foot, more exact the part at the bottom of the fall where there are also possibilities provided for braai. Acces to the lower parts are a bit steeper.

This place is Worth seeing every time I drive through Tzaneen. Never get tired of coming here as it is a lovely picnic spot with Benches and fire pits for cooking. The pools are stunning for bathing if you can handle the slippery rocks.

Beautiful but was too crowded, people driving on the road drives fast & reckless around the corners. Security guard was friendly. Will rather visit during the week

I know this is late but for future reference for other travelers. No booking is needed. But most importantly do take hard cash with you to pay for your entrance.

Unfortunately don't have any contact details. We stopped at Magoebaskloof Hotel for breakfast and they gave me some information about the falls.
