White Water Rafting - Blyde River
Photographer: DO IT NOW
Description: Blyde River Canyon is the third largest in the world and one of South Africa’s scenic wonders.
The scenery of the 25 000 ha reserve is unsurpassed, its vegetation both varied and lush and the rich selection of birdlife includes a breeding colony of the rare bald ibis.
The Blyde River Canyon can be reached from Graskop via R532. The Canyon starts at Bourke’s Luck Potholes and ends at the Three Rondavels.
From many well-positioned vantage points one has a view of the 33 km long gorge.
A public road runs along the long western boundary and there is easy access to beauty spots like The Pinnacle, God's Window with its kloof-framed view of the Lowveld, Bourke's Luck, and a lookout point pointing on The Three Rondavels.
