1. TUGELA FALLS

1.   TUGELA FALLS

KwaZulu-Natal

[948 metres]

Enclosing the Southern African plateau is the Great Escarpment, the eastern portion of which is a great piece of earth that elevates majestically, forming the shape of a dragon. The beautiful venom that this mythical monster spectacularly spews is known as Tugela Falls and it drops 947 meters down the rock-face of the Drakensberg’s Amphitheatre in three free-leaping falls. This is may be the second tallest waterfall in the world but it marches in lockstep with the tallest ever. There is a plausible argument that it is actually the tallest waterfall in the world, rather than Venezuela’s Angel Falls. The combined total drop of its five distinct free-leaping falls is 948 metres. At the right time of year, it is easily visible from the main road into the park, especially after a heavy rain.
