Bridal Veil Falls is a sheer sheet of water tucked away in Mpumalanga's Lowveld.
The Mpumalanga region welcomes visitors into a dewy world of waterfalls, among them the silvery torrent of the Bridal Veil Falls. Cascading down 70m of sheer rock face, the falls resemble the delicate white cloth of a veil. The Veil cannot be accessed directly by road - instead, it invites adventurous spirits to hike 750m through lush indigenous forests.
Though challenging, the reward is a breathtaking sight. Gossamer mists dance around the length of the watery shroud and cool the faces of those who wander nearby. The Bridal Veil Falls are located a few kilometers outside the sleepy town of Sabie on the way to Graskop, affectionately known as the country's pancake capital - a fine pitstop en route to Kruger!
Because of being somewhat more difficult to access, Bridal Veil Falls is not as famous or popular as the province's various other waterfalls, which are all reachable by road. If your time is limited and you cannot incorporate a hike during your trip through Mpumalanga, Mac Mac Falls, Lisbon Falls and Berlin Falls are all incredibly striking.
