Further west and you are close. What are the 2 towns or the tar pass? There is a lodge close by with the name of a traditional weapon

That is the area ... you check this waterfall if you take the "really scenic route". Legend has it that a newly married couple went to have some photos take at the top. Wind came up suddenly and caught up all the bride's lace, taffeta and silks and gooi-ed her off the edge to her death ... Groom was so bereft that he leaped after her

That is how the falls got its unofficial name. The river it is on feeds into another river which gives name to the town at our biggest border post with Mozambique
