The majestic canyon of the Blyde River
In most organized excursions I found in the South African population of NelspruitThey offered a package that included the crown jewel - the safari in the Kruger Park - along with a day of visit to three points of interest (in fact, it is also offered separately for those who do not want to spend the money on the Kruger): Blyde River Canyon (the Blyde River Canyon), Bourke's Luck Potholes (Bourke's Lucky Pots) and Lisbon Falls (Lisbon Falls).
Given the high price that would cost me both days in the Kruger, I decided to ignore the package offer and choose “only” to be able to contemplate the African wildlife in one of the best parks on the continent. But friend Crazy Dave ended up including him at no additional cost. I am very happy that he did it because we had a really useful day in which we enjoyed beautiful landscapes.
Blyde River Canyon
The Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve It is located in the region of Mpumalanga and can be easily accessed by paved roads from the village of Graskop. This is how we arrived at the viewpoint where we could enjoy spectacular views: God's Window (the Window of God).
Dave parked the van and left us for a while to wander along the path that leads to God's Window at our leisure.
The Blyde canyon is the third largest in the world and not only offers views but, if you have more time, you can devote to rafting, hiking, fishing or cycling. It covers 29,000 hectares and offers accommodation in the reserve for those who want to miss a few days in the lowland forests.
