When the flow isn’t so strong tourists can take a freshening dip at the bottom, where the full water force is broken as it pours over a series of threaded rock faces. Tourists can likewise explore the neighboring area for sights of rare animals and plants such as orchids and poison arrow frogs. Lucky tourists may chance upon anteaters, armadillos, and even some wild cats such as jaguars and pumas which find a hideout in the park.
There is not any Devil Pool available like on Victoria Falls, you may just enjoy the fall from front. Photography at fall sometime very difficult as most of the time the clouds will cover the area and sometime the winds make the fall not stable.
