Blyde River Canyon

Home > back to Mpumalanga 


This beautiful canyon is certainly an impressive natural wonder with its cliffs rising up to 800 metres from the riverbed.  The Blyde River Canyon is one of the most spectacular views in South Africa.  


Possibly the best view in the whole of the Blyde River Canyon is of the "Three Rondavels" is considered to the best view show casing round rocks which are reminiscent of the huts of the indigenous people.  These huts or houses are known as Rondavels.
