Popular Attraction in Blyde River Canyon

The magnificent red sandstone Blyde River Canyon in Mpumalanga forms the northern part of the Drakensberg escarpment. There’s so much to do in Mpumalanga but most visitors come here just to sight-see, especially along the striking Panorama Route. This scenic meander includes the Blyde River Canyon, Bourke's Luck Potholes, the Three Rondawels, Swadini Dam, God's Window and many beautiful waterfalls and spectacular vistas. Covered with lush subtropical foliage, the Blyde River Canyon is the largest 'green canyon' and has some of the deepest precipitous cliffs of any canyon on the globe. The canyon is 26km (16 miles) in length and is around 800m deep. The highest point of the canyon, Mariepskop, is 1,944m above sea level whilst its lowest point where the river leaves the canyon is slightly less than 560m above sea level. This means that by some measure the Canyon is over 1,400m deep! Day and overnight white water rafting trips are available – contact Blyde Canyon Adventure Centre: +27 (0)15 795 5961.
