11. Hike to a waterfall


Hike to a waterfall: improve your overall fitness by hiking to a waterfall or along an accessible path with a view.



Waterfalls can reflect relatable emotions: at times, they calmly flow like smooth threads, and other times they roar like thunderous giants.  


The sounds, smells, and drifting mist of waterfalls make us feel alive and connected to the life-giving force of the land. From a small, trickling stream to towering cliffs, waterfalls show us the extremes of nature’s energy and synergies with our feelings. Waterfalls are at their grandest in winter or after heavy rains. Some waterfalls are easily accessible in SA, while others require more strenuous hiking to reach your reward.
