Blyde River Canyon

We love talking holidays and we're here to help. If you'd like our advice on how to create an amazing Johannesburg holiday, just give our Destination Specialists a call.

As one of the largest canyons in the entire world, and perhaps the most 'green' of them all, Blyde River Canyon offers impressive views and changing landscapes at every turn.

Thanks to its lush, subtropical foliage, the fresh mountain scenery and amazing views have resulted in the canyon also being known as the 'Panorama Route'; and it's not hard to see why. You're guaranteed a remarkable experience when visiting Blyde River Canyon, as you gaze over misty highlands and acres of red sandstone backdrop that make the canyon one of South Africa's most fascinating geological sights. 

If you fancy a challenge, why not take on one of the area's hiking trails, such as the Leopard Trail that offers jaw-dropping views of the river, dam and its surrounding area? Or, visit the Kadisha Tufa Waterfall, the second tallest of its kind on earth. While spending time at Blyde River Canyon, you'll also encounter an array of South African wildlife and birdlife, including hippos, crocodiles, vervet monkeys and eagles.

A natural phenomenon, a trip here isn't just for nature lovers but those who want to truly soak up South Africa's beauty.
