You can view the waterfall best from the south side of the gorge and a particularly good time of day to visit is at sunset when you can see swallows and then bats flying around. Hiking is extremely popular in the area especially the 2-day Klipspringer Trail. Call Maupintour today to book your trip at 877-874-7776 or visit us at www.maupintour.com
