Rust en Vrede Waterval
Isolated beauty, engraved into the heart of the Swartberg Mountain by natures powerful forces. Rust-en-Vrede is situated on a scenic detour branching off the R328, 23km from Klein Afrika and 18km from Oudtshoorn on the way to the Cango Caves. The waterfall is hidden among the beauty of the Karoo. The path leading to this natural beauty blooms with wild flowers whilst far below amidst ferns and undergrowth, a powerful river ripples over rocky edges.
This scenic and peaceful trail ends in great reward. Collected at your feet is the sparkling pool that originated from a spring high up in the mountains. Rust-en-Vrede is a safe sanctuary for indigenous plant and animal life; definitely a precious asset of the Klein Karoo and Cango Valley.
