Mac Mac Falls, Mpumalanga

As South Africans, I think we sometimes take our beautiful country for granted. We have so many "hidden" gems, that we just don't appreciate enough.

One such treasure is the Mac Mac Falls in Mpumalanga. The Mac Mac falls were names after the Scottish miners that panned there for gold during the 1870's Gold rush. The Mac Mac Falls belong to a cluster of waterfalls in the Sabie area. Of this cluster of waterfalls, the Mac Mac falls are the most dramatic at a hight of approximately 70m.

The drive to these falls are amazingly scenic with lots of places to stop along the way, should you be feeling a little "snappy-happy".

The Mac Mac falls are situated 13 km outside the town of Sabie on the R532.
