Access to the falls is by private vehicle. The road is quite poor and rocky. A four wheel drive vehicle is recommended. At the end of the road, you still have to hike for another km. It is definately worth the trouble to get there.

A bit of an adventure to find the falls and I'm sure the access and area generally will be improved in the future. We had a pineapple snack, plus "photo opportunity" from a local guardian and made a donation to the local economy !
