There's a mesmerising beauty in watching water fall and foam from great heights - and the recent rains in the Western Cape have delivered their own kind of magic along the Dutoits Kloof Pass.   

In this video posted by Du Kloof Lodge to Facebook, you can see a cascade of waterfalls along the Dutoits Kloof Pass in the Cape Winelands. 

Rather magical, and making us do a little happy dance for all the rain that's been falling lately. 

If you enjoy waterfalls and want to plan your next road trip around SA's most beautiful - watch the video above.

The Tugela Falls is more than just a spectacular sight to see while hiking in the Drakensberg. At almost 950 metres it's also considered the second-tallest waterfall in the world, beaten by the heights of Venezuela's Angel Falls. 

Moving closer to the coast, Waterfall Bluff on the Wild Coast in the Eastern Cape puts on another spectacular show - but one that's actually very rare. After a slightly gruelling 28km hike, you'll see one of only 19 waterfalls in the world that falls into the ocean, and is only one of two in Africa.

But on the other side of the country, far from the lush greenery of Tugela and Waterfall Bluff, lies the thunderous creation of the Orange River - the mighty Augrabies Falls. It may not have the tallest or most unique waterfalls, but it's definitely the most impressive for its sheer power, cutting through the rocky landscape like the arm of a powerful god. 

Another noteworthy waterfall is the Witpoortjie Waterfall in the Walter Sisulu Botanical Gardens right near the hustle of Johannesburg. This one is well-known for its residents - a pair of endangered black eagles that's called the cliffs around the waterfall home for over 30 years. 

Out of all these waterfalls, which one will you visit next?
