Forever Blyde Canyon Resort
Blyde Canyon, A Forever Resort. Commanding views of the Blyde River canyon, which is the third largest river canyon in the world, as well as the Three Rondavels, remarkable buttresses that rise from the rivers’ waters. This Mpumalanga resort is situated on the escarpment between Graskop and Ohrigstad, three hours from Johannesburg and some forty minutes from the Kruger Mpumalanga International Airport.
It is the ideal base for hiking trails on foot or horseback, and scenic trips by car to well-known Mpumalanga tourist attractions, such as historic Pilgrim’s Rest, the fascinating Bourkes’ Luck Potholes, the amazing Pinnacle, the stunning Mac Mac Waterfalls, and the awesome God’s Window, which is without doubt one of the world’s most breathtaking views.
