Just 13km from Sabie on the R532 road towards Graskop lies Mac Mac Falls, which was named by the Scottish miners who sought their fortune by panning for gold in the 1870s gold rush; they themselves didn’t come up with the name. Apparently, President Thomas Burger was visiting the area in 1873 and was struck by how many of the miners names began with “Mac”. On the spot, he named the area Mac Mac – a name that has survived to this day.

 

Passing the local curio sellers, a steep walk along a cement pathway (with many steps)takes you to the viewing platform. The view platform at the Mac Mac Falls is restricted by palisades, but you still get a great view, just make sure your camera lens points through the palisades.

Please note that swimming is strictly not allowed.
