This is an extreme whitewater experience, so not for the feint-hearted; helmets and endurance are necessary.
One of the most beautiful rivers in the world, the Blyde River allows one to paddle demanding rapids (excitement bordering on truly challenging), take in some of the most awesome scenery that begins in the Mariepskop Forestry Reserve and ends as the Blyde River joins the Blydepoort Dam, and the Three Rondavels above you against a sheer wall of rock.
It's a full day's worth of fun and exhilaration. Or you can opt for an overnighter at a rustic busy camp in A-frame huts.
