    Beautiful natural scenery
    Easy enough to get there in a sedan. The walk is well sign posted until a certain point (over the bridge at the bottom) then you're not sure whether to go left or right... Go right! Up the path, back to the parking area. The loop is about a 15-minute walk. It's beautiful.

    Amazing experience, guard not the best and website outdated, but overall the falls made up for that.
    Really enjoyed visiting Debengeni falls. The actual falls were amazing they never disappoint. I will say they they have not updated the new prices on their website and they only accept cash. The guard at the gate was less then friendly and helpful, but I overlook that and rate the overall experience… I would definitely recommend the visit it’s well worth it.

    Breathtaking Limpopo
    It was the drive from Polokwane to the waterfalls that made the experience extra, the road is smooth and awesome and the views are breathtaking. The waterfalls is worth the fuss and the anticipation. The general surroundings are clean and good for a picnic or just a getaway. Careful the rocks are slippery, otherwise, it's worth the R45 entry fee.

The place is nice but not safe, safety signs not visible to the public, we nearly lost 3 of our group in the pond, no signs of danger or more information about the pond, not happy at all, I strongly feel the pond should be camped for safety, more lives will be lost there, very dangerous.

The drive to the premises was picturesque; when we reached the point of disembarking the buses, we experienced a long downhill walk on a semented driveway right to the very Debengeni Falls where easy walkways took us to beautiful places to view all along the falls and river. Here the guests took photos and enjoyed the beauty of nature.

Not allowed to swim or braai anymore at the falls. Don’t know why they charge R30 entrance if you are not allowed to use the facility

Perfect nature at it’s best! A bit challenging for the elderly but worth it when you reached the waterfall!

This was off the beaten track and so worth it. Must have a car with good clearance. Take shoes with good traction too as the rocks are slippery. Absolutely beautiful waterfall and pristine river. Really enjoyed the views. There are clean amenities for picnics.

Stunning scenery . Wished we had a 4x4 or at least high clearance vehicle for the dirt road entry . It's a very bad road . Lovely walks . R30 entry fee is well worth it .
