Directions to Blyde River Canyon Lodge
Please use GPS co-ordinates in conjunction with written directions, they can direct you on a longer route.
We are located at the entrance to the Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve. The lodge is situated four and a half hours north of Johannesburg/Pretoria.
From Johannesburg and Pretoria
Take the N12 from Johannesburg and the N4 from Pretoria, past Witbank (Emalahleni) and Middelburg to Belfast.
Turn onto the R540 at Belfast to Dullstroom and Lydenburg (Mashishing).
When you come into Lydenburg (Mashishing) turn left onto the R36 to Origstad, travel through Origstad, travel straight past the R532 turn off, travel straight through the Abel Erasmus Pass, travel straight on the R36 through the Strijdom Tunnel, (the tunnel is 21 km from the R532 turn off).
After the tunnel the road automatically changes to the R527 to Hoedspruit. Travel straight on this road for 24.5 km from the tunnel and then turn right onto the Jonkmanspruit /Driehoek Road D1803 (if you cross the Blyde River you have gone too far). There is a sign board that says Blyde River Canyon Lodge just before the bridge.
Drive about 14 km and you will find a T- junction, turn right and drive for 500m and we are on the right in the Blyde River Botanical Reserve.
Turn right into the Blyde River Botanical Reserve and this leads to the Blyde River Canyon Lodge.
