About this spot
If you find yourself chasing the wildflowers in Namaqualand in the Northwestern Cape in South Africa in August, this relatively unknown spot is 31km south of the town of Vanrynsdorp. Drive to the Gifberg Holiday Farm and pay the modest fee to take the trail to the falls. Be aware that if it has been a dry year there may not be any water flowing.
