Attraction Name: Rust-en-Vrede
CATEGORY:: Natural Attractions
Type: Waterfalls
Entrance Fee (Terms): A small entrance fee is charged
Description of Attraction: Situated on a slight but scenic detour of the R328 in the Klein Karoo just 18 km from Oudtshoorn on the way to the Cango Caves. Rust-en-Vrede , 'rest and peace' from the Afrikaans expression is situated in the heights of The Swartberg Mountains.

A scenic trail leads you over a multitude of small bridges, through the growth until you arrive at the sparkling plunge pool. Here the crystal clear water collects, after gushing from a fresh spring higher in the mountain. Due to the fact that the waterfall is in a protected area, it is a safe sanctuary for indigenous plant and animal life and beautiful wild flowers bloom in great profusion alongside the path while far below amidst ferns and undergrowth, a powerful river ripples over rocky edges.

Braai (barbecue) facilities and picnic places are available at the entrance. Open from 09:00 - 16:30. A small entrance fee is charged. A definite must see for anyone traveling to Oudtshoorn.
Street Address: R328 towards Cango Caves
