About Us

Experience the beauty of Blyde Canyon River

Blyde Canyon Safaris, together with the Moletele community, offer scenic boat trips on the Blyde Dam. This is your opportunity to see the famous Three Rondawels and the Blyde River Canyon from the angle it’s supposed to be seen: while you’re on the water, at the base of the towering mountains that form these breathtaking sights. Tick off those last couple of birds that have been eluding your bird list and enjoy seeing the hippo’s and crocodiles that make this dam their home.

We are passionate about nature and preserving the few untouched pieces that remain in South Africa. We aim to offer everyone the opportunity to experience the beauty that the Lowveld has to offer. We run several activities and excursions and through our sister company, Blyde Adventure Camp, adventure and leadership camps for large groups.

The Blyde River Canyon

The Blyde River Canyon is the largest green canyon in the world, thus making it one of the most visited attractions in South Africa and definitely on the list of activities to do in Mpumalanga. There are three ways in which you can visit the Canyon: from the viewpoints at the Three Rondavels, white river rafting, flying over it with a helicopter or in a microlight. Blyde River Canyons offer a 4th option by taking a scenic boat trip and viewing the Three Rondavels on the water.

Kadishi Tufa Waterfall

The Kadishi Tufa Waterfall is the second tallest tufa waterfall in world and it drops into the elegant Blydepoort Dam. Tufa waterfalls are formed from water that runs over dolomite rock, which absorbs calcium. This is the very reason that it is known as “the weeping face of nature”.

Bourke’s Luck Potholes

Visit the natural wonder called “Bourke’s Luck Potholes”. These Potholes have been formed over decades, due to the water that swirls over the rock formations that meet at the Treur River and the Blyde River.

Sudawala Caves

Visit the Sudwala Caves, which are regarded as the oldest caves in the world. Go see the PR Owen Hall known as the Amphitheatre, which has its own natural cooling system.

Lowveld Botanical Gardens
