After four fun filled days in Cape Town and Stellenbosch we flew to Johannesburg. We rented a car and set off for the safari portion of the trip. We had one stop in mind before spending the remainder of the trip in Kruger National Park, and it was Blyde River Canyon.
The Panorama Route is one of the highest and most scenic roads in South Africa and worth any amount of time you can allocate in your itinerary. We did a pretty quick drive by covering the main sights.
View of the Three Rondavels in the Blyde River Canyon.
Whether you were taking in the full panoramic view or just the Three Rondavels it is absolutely beautiful!
Group shot! Party of six.
View of the Blyde River running through the canyon.
Taking it all in.
We also found the Pinnacle, an impressive rock column rising out of the canyon.
Next up was Bourke’s Luck.
Over time the rivers have carved potholes into the stones.
To bring it back to reality, this is a tourist attraction with walkways and bridges to the views above.
The final stop we made before entering the park was at God’s Window. The view from God’s Window extends 60 miles towards Mozambique. It is referred to as the most beautiful view in South Africa.
We are heading off on safari…pray for us!
Be sure to check out the rest of the trip: Cape Town, Stellenbosch, and Kruger National Park!
