I took the kids to Walter Sisulu gardens yesterday morning. The aim was to climb up the “mountain” to the top of the waterfall. I’ve never done it with the kids before… I went up there years ago, and it was high time I went again. I’ve seen photos from trail runners who take photos from the ridge, but didn’t realise where the trail actually was.

Of course, we had to exercise at the outdoor gym first 😉

How gorgeously blue is the sky?

Even though the veld was very dry and brown, spring flowers were starting to appear all over the place

I love the shapes of the rocks on the “mountain top”

After having a rest at the top of the steps, we decided to follow the trail. I was hoping to get to the very top, but Connor was miserable by then, and refused about 3/4 of the way up the next climb to take a step further. So Bradley carried on for a while to see if he could get to the very top.

We were so lucky to see the pair of black eagles flying around above the falls, chasing a crow. I only took my 50mm lens so it didn’t come out 🙁


It’s such an awesome outing for holidays. During the week the park is really not busy at all, and it’s also not an expensive day out!
