This 7km part of the Kingfisher Trails is a little more strenuous, but it is also the only one of the Kingfisher trails that lead to a waterfall. Luckily, this trail that meanders along the Touw River has several stops along the way where you can rest at picnic tables or take a quick dive into the river to cool off. You won’t have to worry too much about the sun as most of the trail is covered by beautiful green canopies. One of the highlights of this trail is crossing the river on the pontoon, a good old fashion pull along barge that can fit about 6 people at a time. Head to the tiered rocky waterfall where there is more than enough room to unpack your picnic basket. The waterfall offers several small pools that you can jump into from the rocks.
