Mac Mac Falls in Thaba Chweu Rural, Mpumalanga
The Mac Mac Falls at 65m on the Panorama Route in Mpumalanga, is second highest to the Lisbon Falls and was declared a National Heritage Site in 1983.
This waterfall was originally one single stream but the Mac Mac diggers created the second fall when they blasted it with dynamite to divert the river in an attempt to work the rich gold-bearing reef over which it plunges.
Cement steps with safety railings have been provided to gain access to the view points from where one can see the two uninterrupted cascades plunging into the deep densely wooded chasm, with the river twisting in the gorge below.
