Palette knife, an imaginary oil painting from any waterfall in South Africa. Done on an x-raysheet: 43 × 35 cm. Original available.

Africa Waterfalls are one of the most underappreciated aspects of African nature. Sure the word Africa conjures up wildlife safaris, the Sahara, and even political and humanitarian turmoil. But outside of Victoria Falls, there aren’t a whole lot of people who know much or anything about the continent’s other fabulous waterfalls.
Indeed, Africa features some of the best wildlife left on the planet, some of the rawest, undeveloped scenery to be found, and some of most generous and friendly people (even while facing some of the worst of humanity). And while visiting the continent is not for sissies, there’s no doubt that a trip here will change your life, change your perspective on the world, and make you appreciative and grateful for things you already have.
Waterfalls we often visit in Mpumalanga are:
Berlin Falls
Bridal Veil Falls, near Sabie
Lisbon Falls
Long Tom Waterfall
Lone Creek Falls, near Sabie
Mac-Mac Falls
Horseshoe Falls
Sabie Falls
One of the famous waterfalls from Africa is in Zimbabwe:
Victoria Falls – widest in Africa and one of the widest in the world
