This waterfall is surprising because it's right in town and you don't notice it when driving over the bridge into Sabie. However, it's an impressive waterfall and the bridges and walkways over some of the crevices of the falls allow visitors an amazing view into the power of the water.
Some notes on our visit:
* There was a charge of R20 per vehicle at the car park.
* It's a very easy walk from the car park to the falls, but there is quite a lot of mud so I was sorry I wasn't wearing closed shoes.
* A part of the viewing area doesn't have protective fencing / rails and some of the existing fencing needs replacement. We were glad we didn't have small children with us - one would need to keep a close eye on them because there's a lot of fall risk.
* The gardens around the falls were pretty, but there was sadly quite a lot of litter - something we noticed at most of the government-run attractions in the area. Pity the entrance fees aren't being used to clean up the site.

The falls are right in town and truly majestic. The gorge view is beautiful. It can do with some TLC like upkeep of the gardens and ablutions. Also needs a bit of fencing at places which could be potentially slippery and dangerous.
It is R20 per car so not expensive. However, the other waterfalls in close proximity are better maintained.

The natural falls and the man-made make this place awesome. Great place for photographs. However, the place needs sturdy protective fences around the cliffs. The path to the falls drop needs refurbishment as most of the planks used are bogged in mud. I liked the trinkets market and bought a beautiful wooden bowl and necklaces.

At the entrance, we were met by a security guard that informed us of the R 20.00 admittance fee per vehicle, payable when we leave. The area of the falls is maintained well but an unpleasant smell emanated from the water.

I would not recommend going to this fall. You need to pay R10 access and its not that spectacular. There are other falls that are much more spectacular close by.

It is just some waterfalls in the city. The good thing is you don’t have to walk a long distance to see it

It's only 10 ZAR per car to visit, and the volunteers do a good job keeping everything neat, tidy and clean : the azelea garden was very pretty.
However, it's difficult to see the actual falls, as they are narrow and surrounded by rocks...the dam overflow is quite attractive.

Worth a look if you are in Sabie, but not a patch on others ...Forest Falls, Lisbon, Berlin...

Compared to the other falls in the area, I was a little bit disappointed by the Sabie Falls. However, it is worth a visit if you in the area. Very relaxing and peaceful.
