Departing from Hippo Hollow Hotel in Hazyview, we follow the Sabi River Valley along the edge of the Escarpment to where the first state-owned timber plantations in the region were planted. We’ll fly over the incredible 30-metre-high Pinnacle, a weathered column of free-standing sandstone rising above the tangle of indigenous forest.

Have your camera ready for spectacular photographic opportunities as we linger above the breathtaking Lisbon Falls, which tumble in four cascades down a 92-metre-high cliff into a large, beautiful, and icy cold pool. Witness the Berlin Falls and see how water is forced through a narrow gap before tumbling in a single feathery cascade.

Be transported back in time whilst observing the 64-metre high Mac Mac Falls, which were split into two splendid streams before plunging into the forested gorge below by miners who placed dynamite on the crest of the Mac Mac Falls during the gold rush Era.

God’s Window will be our next experience; here you will be treated to one of the finest views of the beautiful Mpumalanga Lowveld before landing back at Hippo Hollow.
