This is a relatively easy hike but the catch is in the distance of approximately 16kms. The unspoiled fynbos, lack of cellphone reception and the sheer beauty of the waterfalls is worth every step of the way. Due to the distance, some experience and fitness is required.

Bring snacks, water, lunch, hat, sunblock, light jacket, R20 guest fee if not a member of the Meridian Hiking Club. Please indicate if you are willing to carpool as the reserve is outside Stellenbosch. Family and friends welcome, no dogs allowed. Please Whatsapp or SMS queries only.
