Lonely Planet review for Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve
At almost 30km long Blyde River Canyon is one of South Africa’s most outstanding natural features. Much of it is bordered by the 26,000-hectare Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve, which winds its way north from Graskop, following the Drakensberg Escarpment and meeting the Blyde River as it snakes down to the lowveld. The majority of visitors drive along the canyon’s edge, and there are plenty of viewpoints along the way where you can stop and gaze in awe. If you have enough time, however, it’s even better explored on foot.
