The Lisbon Falls are falls in the Lisbon Creek, a right bank tributary of the Blyde River. They are situated a short distance north of Graskop beside the R532 road, and are the highest waterfalls in Mpumalanga, South Africa.[1] The waterfalls are 94 metres (308 ft) high[2] and were named for the capital city of Portugal.[citation needed]

Located close to God's Window, they are however just outside the Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve, as several others like the Berlin Falls, Lone Creek and Mac-Mac Falls. The falls are situated along the Panorama Route.
