The Sundays Falls hike is probably one of the easiest short trails in the Royal Natal National Park and we set out one morning while camping there to see what the Sundays Falls look like. As usual Chaos Boy was in the lead and Drama Princess tried her best to persuade us that it would be better to relax around camp rather than head into the veld where we spotted some baboons the previous day.
Only about 100 meters onto the trail we crossed this little stream with tiny little pink flowers hanging over it. As with most of the trails in the area there is no shortage of streams and rivers along the way and because it was in the mids of the summer rainy season the vegetation was lush and green.
The day was very overcast and it felt like every time we headed through an open area it decided to drizzle. The irony of it was that whenever we found a spot where we could shelter it stopped. At least it was nice and warm, so the drizzle didn't really bother. It actually helped to keep us cool.
All the way down I could hear the waterfall and just caught glimpses of it through the thick vegetation, but my surprise was huge when I got to the bottom and saw the waterfall in its full glory. The contrast from the top to the bottom is poles apart. What looked like nothing more than a stream flowing over a ledge turned into a beautiful waterfall.
