The Horse Shoe Falls are very pretty and the short walk to see them is worthwhile. There is also nice lawns to sit and have a picnic, should you want to.

The road is bumpy for sure, but the falls are worth the aggravation. Sturdy footwear is important here as the paths into and at the falls are much less flat and finished than Lone Creek, for instance. The lower horseshoe falls are more modest than...More

A very bumpy ride takes you to this beautiful spot. Not the highest waterfall in the area, but well worth a visit. The small hike after parking the car is also very nice.

We visited all of the falls in and around Sabie they are all worthy seeing - just be aware that the entry fee is no longer per car but per person. This has annoyed a number of visitors who have publically complained.

This little gem won't be found on your usual tourist maps. Look out for the sign as you make your way to Lone Creek waterfall. Getting into the pool is a challenge for the kids, but they expect to have lots of fun.

The horse shoe falls were certainly spectacular, different view points and each point had something unique to offer. The road to get into the falls is not very user friendly, however, you can drive through very carefully. Entrance is R10.00 pp,
