Blyde River Canyon

Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve - The fresh mountain scenery and panoramic views over the Klein Drakensberg escarpment are

quite spectacular and give the area its name of 'Panorama Route'. Viewpoints are named for the spectacle they offer, and

God's Window and Wonder View hint at the magnitude of the scenery. The 'Pinnacle' is a single quartzite column rising out of the

deep wooded canyon and the 'Three Rondavels' (also called 'Three Sisters’) are three huge spirals of dolomite rock rising out of

the far wall of the Blyde River canyon. Their domed heads are iced in green and their sides are stained with fiery orange lichen.

From the 'Three Rondavels' you can see the extensive Swadini Dam in the far distance, which marks the end of the reserve.
