Blyde Canyon, A FOREVER RESORT has commanding views of the Blyde River Canyon, the third largest canyon in the world. This three and four star Resort is located a mere 160 kilometers from Nelspruit and 50 kilometers from Graskop. It is the ideal base for hiking trails and scenic trips by car to well-known Mpumalanga locations, including Pilgrim’s Rest.Set against the Greater Drakensberg Escarpment, this area encompasses some of the most dramatic scenery in South Africa. Unique geological features at Bourke's Luck Potholes, Three Rondavels and Gods Window are not to be missed. Its scenery is unsurpassed, its vegetation both varied and lush and the rich selection of birdlife includes a breeding colony of the rare bald ibis. Wildlife in the canyon area is as varied as the habitats. There are mountain reedbuck on the escarpment, dassies on the canyon walls, hippo and crocodile in the Blyde Dam, and impala, kudu, blue wildebeest, waterbuck and zebra on the Lowveld plain near the canyon's mouth.
