Mpumalanga Tourist AttractionsLisbon Falls
The South African province of Mpumalanga is one of natural, historical and cultural diversity. It is also home to the Panorama Route, which is an exquisite part of the local countryside that showcases some of the most beautiful vistas in the country, if not the world. The waterfalls here are particularly gorgeous, and plentiful.
Lisbon Falls is no exception and is actually one of the most dramatic and scenic waterfalls in the region. It is situated in the heart of the waterfall area of Mpumalanga, where the number of these dramatic falls exceeds that of anywhere else in southern Africa. Lisbon Falls is 94 metres, or 308 feet, high, which makes it one of the highest in the province.
Being located just north of Graskop and outside the ever-popular Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve, Lisbon Falls is convenient and accessible to locals and to visitors from all over the world.
There are lovely trees nearby, under which a picnic with friends and family can be enjoyed while the vistas are savoured. Bird lovers are also invited to visit Lisbon Falls and to keep an eye out for the many exciting avian species that inhabit the Panorama Route.
The little town of Graskop is centred on the forestry industry, and is close to a host of the local tourist attractions and fun activities. As such, it is not only set within some of the most glorious scenery imaginable, but is also a fantastic base from which to explore the area and indulge in the many things to do and see here.
These include Bourke’s Luck Potholes, the Blyde River Canyon, God’s Window, the Three Rondawels, and the many other waterfalls. Indeed, Lisbon Falls really is in the hub of an area so spectacularly situated for international tourism and local appeal.
