Worth a quick stop. 20 mins max. Nothing extraordinary but good to see if time allows it. The view from the top is better. Photos can be done . Very senic and looks good. Something to really see if you have not seen waterfalls before. However in South Africa we have many better falls therefore was nothing to shout about.

Pretty attraction but only easily accessible by car. It's a short walk from the car park and is impressive to see.

This was just one of the places we stopped during our tour of the south-west. A good photo opportunity from the car park but event better if you take a short walk to a higher viewpoint along a well made path.

This is really a beautiful sight. The scenic is perfect and the drive to get there is really a beautiful drive up the mountain. I will highly recommend this trip - its very easy to find and close to the attraction "Seven Coloured Earth" so see that as well when your are there.

Stunning to see from a distance. We stopped by on the way to Chamarel to take some pictures. There are some stairs which we had to climb before we could see part of the waterfall.

On your way to colored sand, it is okey to stop to take a picture. But it is certainly not worth to go there as the main attraction.

The waterfalls looks quite intriguing as it can be viewed only from a distance and you wouldnt be able to see where it actually ends. Definitely worth a visit when you are on the South tour and stop by at Chamarel.
