TOUR OF BLYDE RIVER CANYON - PANAROMA ROUTE R2,000-00 p/p
The Panorama route, which includes spectacular views from the escarpment overlooking the Blyde River Canyon, ends at Graskop town where you can shop in markets and specialist curio shops according to your tastes and desires!
We leave Elandela Lodge, after a breakfast at 07h00, to join the Panorama route, to view the Blyde Canyon. The first stop is at the Strydom Tunnel, as we ascend the 1800 metre high Drakensberg mountain range. Utilize your stop at the Three Rondavels – the three peaks look like traditional thatched huts – to take the most spectacular photos of your visit! The Blyde River Canyon is the third deepest in the world and from your view point you can see the edge of the escarpment drop down to the Blyde River far down below! Breathtaking and guaranteed to give you butterflies in your stomach! At every tourist stop you will encounter a curio market with a vast array of artefacts!
We reach Bourke’s Luck Potholes at 10h30. The hundreds of round potholes were eroded in the orange tinged rock over thousands of years, by the same river flowing through the canyon. Enjoy a leisurely walk over the river on bridges, which give you fantastic photo opportunities! God’s Window and the Pinnacle Rock is on the edge of the escarpment and on a clear day you see the Lowveld stretch out far below you! Around you is a pristine forest which culminates in a true rain forest, which you can visit.
|Arrive in Graskop at 12h00 for lunch, which is included in the tour. Enjoy shopping at your leisure after lunch, in Graskop, in the many shops specialising in different artworks and crafts from across the African continent. There is something for every taste and budget and you can drift in and out of all the shops lining the main street. On our way back we stop at the beautiful Berlin and Lisbon waterfalls. Your last sunset view of the Canyon is at Lowveld View.|
We depart Lowveld Viewpoint at 17h00 to Elandela to arrive in time for a wholesome dinner buffet!
