Blyde River Canyon
At 700m in depth, the Blyde River Canyon is ranked as the 3rd deepest canyon in the world. Millions of years of erosion have carved out dramatic rock formations, such as the Three Rondavels, the Pinnacle, and Bourke's Luck Potholes. Possibly the best view in the whole of the Blyde River Canyon is of the "Three Rondavels", huge, round rocks, thought to be reminiscent of the houses or huts of the indigenous people, known as rondavels. This canyon is part of the famous Panorama route which starts at the town of Graskop and includes God's Window, the Pinnacle and Bourke's Luck Potholes.
Kruger National Park
Huge, wild and full of wildlife, the Kruger National Park is one of Africa's top safari destinations and offers visitors a classic African safari experience - rich in lion prides, elephant herds and thousands of other animals, against shifting backdrops of savannah, forest, river and mountains.
At over 53,000 hectares and with just 12 safari lodges in the reserve, Timbavati offers a very exclusive game experience. The reserve shares a long, unfenced border with the Kruger National Park, and is home to the Big Five as well as a wide array of other game including cheetah and occasional wild dog packs from the Kruger Park. The landscape has a wild and rugged feel to it and the game viewing in Timbavati is excellent.
