Brüllend Falls

At the point where the hanging valley though which the River Zeitlupe flows meets the Tafelland Valley, the waters of the Zeitlupe fall down the mountain side at the Brüllend Falls.

Geography

The Brüllend Falls are about 65ft in height, and flow all year round. There has been the odd occasion where the waterfall has been dry, but that has only been on exceptional years. The large width of the River Zeitlupe means that the falls display a large curtain of falling water, and the action of the water hitting the valley floor over hundreds of years has created a deep plunge pool at the foot of the Brüllend Falls. This plunge pool is surrounded by a much shallower lake, from which the flow of the River Zeitlupe continues down on its course to join the Wildwasser River.
