Worth a walk down a long staircase for a small fee to a large waterfall, guided by local school children, who are raising money for their school.

bit hiking but everyone can do...cold water not suggest for swimmers !astonish view of the valley with most genuine German colony houses...but a visit must be paid to Lushoto too where the cliff end and the view of African savanna never end ...
