Reviewed July 24, 2013

The Cascade de Kpime was a wonderful, intense hike (if you start at the bottom instead of driving halfway up). The falls were beautiful! We took our dogs and we got some great exercise.
When we went back last week though, we spoke with a local guide who told us that if we do go back we should not swim in the water-- IT IS THE MAIN WATER SOURCE FOR KPALIME!
I wish there were signs or something-- there were a bunch of people swimming around when we went!
If you go please, just look at the waterfall!

“Most easily accessible cascade...waterfall”
Reviewed May 13, 2013

12km off highway from kpalime (going towards atakpame). Look for signage on the way showing direction. (turn left)---go straight to the waterfall gates.
5mins walk to the falls. Climb down in another 5mins....enjoy.
Sometimes they cut off water from falls.....diverted to power generating station. You can still enjoy as you can get to go the the base of the falls.....some water still trickles down....different experience.
Small entry fee at the gate....1000cfa/adult. enjoy.

“Pleasant...but not by motorbike!”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

It's a lovely waterfall, but it's all about getting the right guide. My guide arranged motorbikes, and frankly I'd rather have used a 4WD. I'd wanted to hike, but we spent most of the 4 hours on the bikes. A pleasant day, but not what I'd hoped for.
