What a great waterfall and area. We enjoyed the drive up and the 80m waterfall is very impressive, as well as the basin created further downstream. Ablutions, picnic tables and braai's with grills make it a great way to spend time outdoors with your loved...More

The most beautiful waterfall that I have visited in South Africa. Well kept picnic spots. The small fee payable to enter this spot is well worth it.

What a stunning site to visit! Nestled in between the mountains ranges of Magoebaskloof! It's about a 5km dirt road to the waterfalls, the road is well maintained and can be easily reached by your daily vehicle. If I knew I could have a braai...More

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

I mean sure. There is a guard by the car park. But she will probably get bored and hot in the car. There is a lot to explore at the falls and those visiting might explore for quite a while.
