Located 3,000m above sea level, this natural wonder towers above Kwa Zulu Natal.

Meet your group members and tour guide at Sentinel Car Park. Enjoy fantastic views of the Amphitheater as well as Sentinel & Tugela waterfalls as your hike. Tugela Falls is the second-highest waterfall in the world with a drop of 950 meters.
