Howick Falls, Howick

Waterfall · Nature / Park
Marvel at the force of water cascading down Howick Falls, a single-drop waterfall on the Umgeni River. Gushing from a 95 m (310 ft) tall cliff through a large crack in the rock, this water plummets down into a large foaming pool at the base. Hear the sound of the thundering falls and observe the turbulent green vortex of water in the pond, or climb to the cliff-top observation deck, which takes an hour to reach by foot. A popular tourist attraction, the site makes a good picnic spot, with a number of eateries and Zulu traditional arts and crafts shops nearby. Ask about the tale of "inknyamba," a legendary serpent-horse creature living in the waterfall lake. Put Howick Falls and other Howick attractions into our Howick day trip planning website, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Good place to visit while in Howick. Nice to walk to to stretch your legs and see the falls, the beauty of the place and do some light shopping from the stalls in the area.  more »
  • Beautiful spot to visit if you are in the area. The local arts and crafts markets and vendors are top quality. Just make sure to be aware of surroundings here as security can be a concern especially late hours of day.
  • Nice place to just chill off. But people litter alot. The falls is definitely amazing though😊
