Discover the Lisbon Falls

Lisbon Falls is actually one of the most dramatic and scenic waterfalls in the Mpumalanga region. It is situated in the heart of the waterfall area, where the number of these dramatic falls exceeds that of anywhere else in southern Africa.

The Lisbon Falls are the highest waterfalls in Mpumalanga at 92m and are located close to God’s Window. They lie in the Lisbon Creek just north of Graskop on the R532 road, just outside the Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve.

They’re named after the Portuguese capital of Lisbon, which is also the name of a large farm in the area. The names mark the provenance of some of the gold miners who flocked to this area in the late 1800s after gold was discovered at nearby Barbeton and Pilgrim’s Rest: miners rushed from all over the world in the hope of striking it rich.

Also a bird lovers paradise, and all are invited to visit the Lisbon Falls and to keep an eye out for the many exciting avian species that inhabit the Panorama Route.
