Boesmankloof/Oakes Falls Trail

McGregor-Oakes Falls-McGregor

A very popular option is the 1.5 - 2 hour hike to the breathtakingly beautiful waterfall - take along a picnic and your swimming costume and spend the day relaxing in heavenly surroundings.

Beautiful, unspoilt surroundings - well worth the uphill hike back!
