“The Mpumalanga Province might be the land of the rising sun, but it's also the place of waterfalls. There are actually more waterfalls around Sabie than anywhere else in southern Africa. Regarded as the most stunning of the lot, Mac Mac has twin falls that plunge some 70m into a gorge below. Now a national monument, the waterfall was not always split in two. Gold miners in the area for the gold rush blasted the originally single stream to try and reach the gold-bearing reef over which it drops. Mac Mac tends to revert to one fall during the dry season. You will find the waterfall roughly 13km outside of Sabie on R532 on both the Sabie Waterfalls Route and the Escarpment Route. A viewing platform, which allows really good views of the falls, is a little restricted by a wire safety mesh but you should just get your camera lens through the holes, depending on the camera. There are also a series of pools at Mac Mac falls - great for swimming - and a braai and picnic area, so timing your visit for lunch time and an afternoon swim is not a bad idea. A 3km Secretary Bird Trail takes you through the bush in which, if you are lucky and quiet, you will hear the calls of the robin, thrush, cuckoo, greenbul and even the odd Secretary bird. Best time to see the falls, say visitors, is during summer when the falls are full and the ”

“About Bridal Veil Falls Along Mpumalanga’s scenic Panorama Route, which is known for the forestry industry and its many breath-taking waterfalls, lies the particularly pretty Bridal Veil Falls. This part of South Africa is green and verdant, with natural attractions that rival some of the finest in the country, thanks to their diversity and the abundance of fauna and flora. Bridal Veil Falls boasts a 70 metre drop, and visitors look on in awe and wonder as the power of water is seen in its rawest form. Still, the misty spray and elegant thundering are mysteriously and undeniably beautiful too. It is this contradiction that continues to lure people to the falls to be a part of their unadulterated majesty. The falls are a mere six kilometres from the little town of Sabie, which is known for its relaxed vibe and pretty surrounds. There is a path through indigenous forests between the parking lot and the Bridal Veil Falls, enabling visitors to see the beauty of the landscape from different facets and perspectives before reaching the falls. This walk is less than a kilometre long and is most rewarding for its beauty, flowers, streams, ferns, and photo opportunities. However, it is challenging in places, and should not be tackled by the elderly, infirm, or very little ones. A very small entrance fee is required and public ablutions are available. The area around the waterfall may be quiet and serene, but there is certainly no shortage of fun things to do and see. These include mountain biking, white-water rafting, hiking, rock climbing, abseiling, bird watching, and fly fishing. The love for the South African and African cultures is also evident in the many curios, arts, crafts, and mementoes on sale in the region. This assures tourists of the opportunities to get wonderful keepsakes for their friends and family back home.”
“Phabeni Gate is the closest entrance into the Kruger from Sabie- just 55 kilometers via R536 and Hazyview – just 10 kilometres. For those travelling to Kruger from Nelspruit for the day, Phabeni gate makes the already easy journey even simpler – you're in the magnificent Kruger in just over an hour and a quarter.”
