Machadodorp, [1] and Waterval Boven are towns in the Mpumalanga province of South Africa.

Get in[edit]

Use the N4 highway between Pretoria and Nelspruit.

Get around[edit]

See[edit][add listing]

  • The Kruger museum in Waterval Onder.
  • The N.Z.A.S.M tunnel of 1893.
  • The Five Arches Bridge of 1894.

Do[edit][add listing]

Hike from Waterval Boven to Waterval Onder and return by train. The trail starts 1km South of Waterval Boven, where there is a reception office and parking. The trail is 5km long (don't let reception convince you otherwise), some of it uphill.

At the 4km mark, there is a very basic overnight hut. My advice is to skip it.
