Palapye to Blyde River Canyon Area, South Africa

Today we travel into South Africa and carry onward to our campsite that overlooks the magnificent Blyde River Canyon. Named for the Blyde River that flows through it, the canyon is over 26 kilometres in length and is around 800 metres deep. It also creates the northern edge of the majestic Drakensburg Mountain Range. It is known as a ‘green canyon’ because of the unique occurrence of plant life that lines it. The primary viewpoints along the canyon include the Three Rondavels, named so due to their traditional hut-like appearance, and the beautiful God’s Window that provides incredible vistas of the canyon and its surrounds.
