The Lisbon Falls are the highest waterfalls in Mpumalanga, South Africa.[1] They are located close to God's Window and the many other waterfalls in South Africa's Mpumalanga province, like Berlin Falls, Lone Creek and the Mac-Mac Falls.

The Lisbon Waterfalls lie in the Lisbon Creek just north of Graskop on the R532 road, just outside the Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve. The waterfall is 94 metres (308 ft) high[2] and named for the capital city of Portugal.[citation needed] The waterfall lies on the Panorama Route.
