It is notoriously hard to measure the size of a canyon, due to there being so many different ways to measure them (length, height, volume etc.). However, the Blyde River Canyon is largely recognized to be the third largest canyon in the world and forms the Northern part of the Drakensburg escarpment. The canyon, which has actually been officially renamed the Motlatse River Canyon, contains some incredible view points and fantastic walking trails. Our favourite spots were the Three Rondawels, Bourke’s Luck potholes, God’s window and Mac Mac Pools. Stay in Hazyview for easy access to both the canyon and the amazing Kruger Park.
