Fantastic. Quite hard over the rocks and boulders. Remember to take water.

Steep in sections; a few scrambles. Breathtaking views of Lion's Head, and lightly trafficked. Roughly 60 min. hike to reach the MCSA hut.

Enjoyed the hike! Weather was perfect and it was just the right challenge. Would do it again

This is a brilliant place for game drive with the family to see some small wild animals, camping overnight, hiking, mountain biking , cycling , bird watching and picnic Great escape from the city life

Day visitors park a short 5 minute walk from the starr of trail. Trail details that it's a 3 1/2 return trip, however as moderately fit people we completed it in 2hours including 20 mimites at the actual waterfalll and photo stop along the way. There is some scrambling across foreshore rocks, however, is still more than suitable for young children (7+). Unfortunately there was limited water flow when I visited, but am sure in all it's glory would be quite majestic.

Gates open at 07h00 and be sure to bring cash along as their sign reads no cheques or credit cards. They do have a card machine but it wasn't online so I'm not sure if it'll work. I really enjoyed running this trail! Quite rocky and technical at times so took it slow over these parts. There were some flatter stretches as well where you can open up a bit. Overall I'd rate it a moderate trail and would like to return to try improve my time.

Very beautiful, but definitely not ‘moderate’ in difficulty. No challenge if you are looking for a hike that leaves you a bit tired and dirty, but definitely good for a Sunday walk with the family

I definitely enjoyed this hike. Good elevation and technical most times, definitely need to keep your wits about you. I’m off to a three day and two night hike in the Berg soon and this was definitely good practice!

the waterfall was pretty, but could only view it from the bottom. a lot of the hike is unshaded, so go early!

Most beautiful trail along the tsitsikamma coast! Able to see lots of wild animals ( otters ! , dolphins, birds,...). Hiking day 4 was really hard, with several river crossings, but definitely worth it! In summer take your swim clothes as you can go into the ocean in every beach! Accept a bit more weight of your backpack for the first night (the track is really short) and enjoy a nice evening dinner and drinks At the first huts!

I enjoyed it. Will do it again

Excellent beautiful hike. One for the bucket list!

its quiet amazing and the scenery awesome

Great hike, so close to JHB - a great way to visit mama nature without needing to stay overnight. It's about 3.5hrs or 4 hrs to do the Bokmakierie trail - there's game to be seen as well! Full youtube review https://youtu.be/LY4nIzqb4PU (or search for "Bokmakierie" or "Suikerbosrand"). No streams or rivers so bring water.

Incredible trail along the edge of the Drakensberg escarpment. One of the best hikes around. The official trail consists of eight unmarked checkpoints but there is so much beautiful scenery that you won't go wrong by going off course. The views from the edge to the Underberg 4,000 feet below are unforgettable. Typically hiked SOBO from the Sentinel Car Park to Bushman's Nek. Fees are required for Royal Natal National Park and Giant's Castle. All hikers should sign the Mountain Rescue Register at their point of entry. Amphitheatre Backpackers is a great stay either before or after your hike.
