Explore the most popular Waterfall trails in South Africa with hand-curated trail maps and driving directions as well as detailed reviews and photos from hikers, campers and nature lovers like you.

This hike is best enjoyed early morning (before the heat of the day during summer). Two incredible Waterfalls await you about 2 hours of hiking from the starting point. Breathtaking views along the crystal clear waters of the Kromrivier guide you into the Kloof towards the Waterfalls (climbing up a section with chains will be needed to reach the big waterfall), making way for a revitalizing hike. *Remember getting your permit *Going in a group *Taking lots of water or simply filling up directly from the flowing river streams *Taking deep breaths, smiling and being one with mother nature

Very nice walk to a beautiful waterfall. Good place for a picnic. Walk is mostly easy with a couple of creek crossings on rocks.

Enjoyable hike to the bottom of Gudu Fall round trip via Lookout Rock and the Cascades

Barely a trail at times but it’s easy to follow the river up and down. Beautiful canyon and lovely waterfall with a nice pool for swimming. Plenty of other spots to swim in the river along the way. Some scrambling up rocks at times and lots of vegetation growing onto the trail.

Really pretty hike. Definitely not an easy climb but very enjoyable.

hard but worth it

One of the most beautiful hikes you can do! Some tough climbing a very loose descent (kurktrekker / corkscrew).

Fantastic hike! Hard, but absolutely worth it.

Nice easy trail. I would call this an easy trail with a slight incline - the waterfall at the end when we went was only tiny though - a small shower sprinkle I would say.

We started out a little late; around 11:45 at the entrance. The not so talkative cashier told us that the park would close at 18:00. Actually they close and lock the gate around 17:30. Apparently they do (sometimes?) leave someone on watch for a little while. There is a very bumpy rocky one way circle road with a lot of potholes going from the gate to the second parking spot and looping back to the gate. If you don’t want to wreck your small rental car, it takes almost 30min to drive one stretch. We did the climb upto Bergrivier Nek in 2hr15min. By that time there was not enough time to complete the whole 6,5hr trail. So we went back the same way unfortunately. The path is covered in loose rock for a large part. It is very safe and well maintained. The views are worth it. We arrived back at the gate around 17:30 and were asked if there were more cars still at the parking. They apparently wanted to close up. Since the drive is a one way circle and there is also an intermediate (first) parking spot, I had no way of knowing if someone was still there. The funny thing is, they make you sign in, but fail to let you sign out! It all sounds a bit dramatic, which it is not if you are warned and make sure to start on time.
