Day 3: Blyde River Canyon - Johannesburg
After breakfast, you will be taken to visit the third deepest canyon in the world, Blyde River Canyon. It’s an easy, relaxing day trip from Kruger National Park, highlighted with fascinating and informative details offered by your experienced native guides. This vast escarpment is the sort of place where brochures and guidebooks are bereft of expressive adjectives to describe the unsullied mountain scenery and magnificent panoramic views.
Viewpoints overhang cliffs that rise 600 - 800 meters from the riverbed. The canyon extends over twenty kilometers, and you’ll stop at many breathtaking viewing points. Short walks are scheduled along precipices and longer hikes, if you’re up for it, wind through mountain rain forests teaming with exotic birds, rare flowering shrubs, and showering waterfalls.
Stops and hikes at God’s Window, Bourke’s Luck Potholes, the Pinnacle, Lisbon Falls, the Three Rondavels, and other spectacular viewing points are scheduled depending on time constraints. After your last panoramic stop, you then make your way back to Johannesburg to arrive at your lodge or airport in the late evening.
