This Nature Reserve is very impressive with majestic vistas around every corner. The entrance to the park is ZAR 40 which was reasonable. You drive into the Reserve but be mindful that the road is very rocky and you need to have a reasonable car to undertake the drive. There are a number of walks to do - the harder they are the less other walkers that you’ll bump into. Many of the vistas are stunning and the walks give you a great perspective of the area. We also walked to the first waterfall but as the area is in a critical drought there wasn’t too much cascading water to see. Still an impressive walk though. Drive with care but quite doable. Flora is unique. A good afternoon out to explore the area.

It is a lovely hike to the two waterfalls--there are many more routes and this one I chose as I had only a couple of hours to spend. It's an one-hour hike to the second waterfall, half an one to the first one. Please bring sufficient water, 1-1.5 liters per person in Summer, and your favorite energy snack. Use hiking shoes. And please please, look around, up, back, and down while hiking! Simply lovely.

The reserve is beautiful and offers excellent hiking trails. Fresh mountain water along the way to drink. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking. Four hiking routes to choose from. And it is safe to hike inside the reserve. Entrance fee is R40 per person.

This nature reserve allows you break out and have a walk in the nature. We did walk for about 2 hours without crossing anybody else, I do suggest to follow well on the plan where you are.

We unfortunately didn’t have enough time for a longer trail.
