About the Venue

Cradled amidst the rugged splendour of the African bush and cliffs as a backdrop, Thirsty Falls offers spectacular views and absolute privacy in a tranquil environment. Thirsty Falls derives its name from the many mountain waterfalls above in the cliffs, that happen during Highveld thunderstorms, the waters "vanish" into the underground caverns.
