Unfortunately we were met with a thick bank of fog rolling in totally obscuring the view. We still enjoyed the walk and rainforrest though. Just keep in mind that even though it is a sunny day you are not guaranteed a clear view.

Entrance costs R10.00 per person and the views are pretty special. The walk up is easy and it does extend a bit further for those wanting to exercise a bit more. The name is slightly overrated but it is special nonetheless.

Amazing view. Would recommend shoes with grip as there are /minor/ rock climbing involved and slightly slippery pathways. Children are able to use this path since I was with my 4 year old sibling..

This was a good place to stop and stunning views, was only 10 rand per person to enter. Some good sellers there. No good if you don't like climbing steps.

I remember going there as a child.... No sellers and no entrance fee, and the place was well maintained... (Paved paradise and put up a parking lot ?)

Hi. The first view point is virtually on the same level as the car park area, and 50x metres - 60x metres away. The furthest lookout is around 15x minute - 20x minutes walk, through the small rain forest and is mostly... More
