Activities and Attractions

The Elands River Falls is one of the highest waterfalls in Mpumalanga and is situated at one of South Africa's top rock climbing destinations. With a plummet of 70m, Elands River Falls is just as scenic as South Africa's highest waterfall, the 90m Lisbon Falls.

Access to the observation platform is through the old NZASM tunnel built in the late 1800s for the rail track between the towns Waterval Onder and Waterval Boven (meaning 'above the waterfall'), now named Emgwenya (Zulu for 'place of the crocodile').
