Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve


Facing the Greater Drakensberg escarpment, Blyde River Canyon Reserve is found, featuring natural wonders like the Pinnacle Rock, the Three Rondavels, God’s Gate, and Bourke’s Luck Potholes. Many tourists to this area enjoy the pictorial splendor of combining the Panorama Route with outstanding game watching to create a stunning Mpumalanga travel plan in the Kruger National Park.

All of these unusual geological features are easily accessible from the beautiful village of Graskop on tarred roads. There’s plenty of accommodation in the city. Many hiking tracks are through the reserve and taking care of all ages and fitness levels. This South African Mpumalanga Nature Reserve also offers a wide range of adventure sports such as white water rafting, abseiling and relaxing events such as fly-fishing.

Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve is one of Mpumalanga’s few remaining areas of montane grassland. The grasslands are made up of more than 1 000 species of flora, many of which are endemic, uncommon or endangered (found nowhere else in the world).

The Taita Falcon, which is present only in a few areas in the world, is another remarkable dweller. Tourists can see a wide range of wildlife, including Grey Rhebuck, Oribi,  primates, Klipspringer, and Kudu.
