WHERE? Approximately 13km outside of Sabie on R532, Panorama Route, Mpumalanga
WHEN? Open daily
The Mpumalanga Province might be the land of the rising sun, but it’s also a place of falling water. The Sabie Waterfalls Route –highlight of the Blyde River Canyon and its incredible cliffs and views – is well worth the visit. Mac Mac Falls is just one of them. There are more waterfalls around Sabie than anywhere else in southern Africa. Regarded as the most spectacular ,Mac Mac has twin falls that plunge approximately 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.
