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

The serenity around this place is breathtaking. My wife wanted us to stay for more days, just to enjoy the beautiful scenes. The sounds and sights are incredible. Everyone should come to this place incase you are in South africa.

Beautiful spot worth a stop over. We visited on a misty, rainy day so did not stay long but it would be a lovely place to have a picnic on a sunny day.

From the main road (R71) it is well signposted but continue some time on the dirt track before you reach the falls. Nice to see but I think (when we visited there was nobody) it can be a bit crowded in summertime because there a...More

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.
