In Mpumalanga, neighboring the Kruger National Park, lies the majestic Blyde River Canyon. Celebrated for its breathtaking views, one will experience some of the most spectacular mountain scenery in Africa.
From many well-positioned vantage points one has a view of the 68 mile long gorge, which starts at ‘Bourke’s Luck Potholes’ and ends at the ‘Three Rondavels’. The Potholes are very extraordinary rock formations that were shaped millions of years ago by erosion.
The peculiar swirl holes developed when the once rapid river carried masses of sand and debris.
This breathtaking gorge, the third largest in the world, provides unforgettable memories that become indelibly etched upon any avid adventurers soul. Its scenery is unsurpassed, its vegetation is both varied and lush and provides a home to a rich selection of bird and wildlife.
Over thousands of years, surreal cylindrical rock sculptures created by whirling water, have formed a series of dark pools which contrast spectacularly with the streaked white and yellow lichen-covered rocks.
