What a sight!

This place is very beautiful in pictures and being close to it is just breath taking. With the Three Rondavels so perfectly close to this a must see place.

The walk is an easy hike and once you get to the cliff the view is breath-taking and one where you need to sit down and take it all in. Such a shame to snap a photo or two and to be on your way. Please be careful of the edge we saw youngsters right on the edge of the... More

We took a casual stroll that turned into such a beautiful hike, down the mountain and along the most scenic river with over hanging trees. It required some maneuvering but each little turn just got me excited for the next landscape. I would definitely recommend a any of the hikes on offer.

Stunning views of the largest green canyon in the... More
