Blyde River Canyon, Mpumalanga, South Africa
Blyde Gorge is one of the most spectacular green canyons in the whole of Africa. View points are situated at the top of the 800 metre high gorge, and on a clear day spectacular views which go on for miles can be taken in. Dominating the gorge is the Three Rondawels, carved out by the elements over the years. In the summer months beautiful red fruits grow over the stamvrug shrubs which grow around the verge of the gorge.
Yet more breathtaking views of the Lowveld can be taken in here, from the car parking area, walking routes are popular for the wonderful flora that flourishes in the area, also a patch of indigenous forest can be explored.
