Near the town of Sabie the Mac Mac River pours over the Drakensberg Escarpment, across a gold-bearing seam of rock. During the gold rush of the late 19th and early 20th century, Scottish prospectors were peeved that the river hampered their access to this seam and so they attempted to divert the river with dynamite! They only succeeded in splitting the stream into two jets which now spurt over the falls and form one of the most picturesque waterfalls in South Africa. There is a viewing platform here, and not far from the falls are Mac Mac pools, where the adventurous can indulge in a spot of wild swimming.
