Take a helicopter flight from the exclusive Lion Sands Private Game Reserve to the Blyde River Canyon in Mpumalanga.
This must be the most spectacular way of viewing the northern Drakensberg, which is host to some of South Africa's most well known geographical landmarks. Guests are collected from and returned to the Lion Sands helicopter pad.
The helicopter flies due west towards the Drakensberg arriving at the Blyde River Canyon were one gets a close-up view of the Three Rondawels and the Blydepoort Dam. Rising out of the canyon the helicopter passes over the Berlin and Lisbon falls on route to a secluded picnic spot next to the Pinnacle. Here our guests will enjoy a delicious picnic with breath taking views stretching out as far as the Kruger National Park in the east. After lunch the helicopter flies past God's Window, Wonder View, Panorama Falls and over the town of Graskop before heading back to Lion Sands Reserve.
