The most incredible views, a bit of a hike to get to the very top, take water with you. Has a very special place in my heart as my dads ashes rest there.

As always, the views were stunning. The car park was a little busy but well organised. The local market is a little bit of a hit and miss with not only SA and African crafts. Many items on sale are available at China Mall.

You should do this trip once in a life-time. The views are breathtaking. A short hike is necessary to reach the viewing area. Many elderly people with walking sticks were able to manage the trail.

Today was a rainy day, and that did not stop us to come visit this renowned sight in Mpumalanga. The cloudy day actually helped us enjoy the view.

After a 20 minute gentle climb and meander up the well laid out pathways, suddenly you arrive a a balcony, where the world drops away. Mist fingers rise up the previously hidden gorge. This is one of my favourite regions due to the lush vegetation....More
