Blyde Dam Boat Trips Overview
Blyde Dam Boat Trips / Blyde River Canyon (Mpumalanga, South Africa)
Enjoy the splendour of the third largest Canyon in the world which is in South Africa. The Blyde River Canyon is the largest 'green canyon' due to its lush subtropical foliage. An interpretation tour by a tour guide will take you to you to the rare living Kadishi Tufa Waterfall and the Three Rondawels. An abundance of wildlife will keep you distracted while learning more about the natural history of the Blyde Canyon.
The Blyde River Canyon is home to a vast diversity of wildlife, including numerous fish and antelope species as well as Hippos and Crocodiles, primate species and a variety of birdlife such as the African Fish Eagle, African Finfoot and much more.
Possibly the best view in the whole of the Blyde River Canyon is the "Three Rondavels", huge, round rocks, thought to be reminiscent of the houses or huts of the indigenous people, known as rondavels.
The Canyon is famous for the Kadishi Tufa Waterfall. At 200m in height, it is the second tallest tufa waterfall on earth. In the case of the Kadishi Tufa fall, the formation that has been produced strikingly resembles a face which is crying profusely, and is thus sometimes known as the sad face of nature.
