Most visitors to the Kruger Lowveld will have seen the Blyde River Canyon from the view sites along its western edge, but there is an alternative way of viewing the world’s third largest canyon - by boat.

The one-and-a-half-hour boat cruise will give you a different perspective of the Three Rondawels, the Canyon’s famous hut-shaped hills, and provide excellent views of the 200m Kadishi Tufa waterfall, situated beneath the lip of the canyon and which looks like a weeping face.

A camera and binoculars are essential to view the area’s abundant wildlife, which may include hippo, crocodiles, monkeys and the African Fish Eagle.
