Named by the Pedi Tribe meaning "place of the big pot," the site forms a large pool at the base of the waterfall. Dropping from the height of 80 m (262 ft), the falls are nestled amidst a tropical rainforest. Its surroundings are home to over 40 species of indigenous trees and many rare bird species, such as grey wagtail, Christopher robin, and the endemic bush strike. Be sure to watch your step over the slippery rocks.
