About Blyde Boat Cruise

The Blyde River Canyon is the third-largest canyon on the planet, and the largest green canyon on earth. This is thanks to the verdant greenery that drapes its slopes and nestles in its crevices. As such, it is absolutely awe-inspiring to see and tour, humbling in its scale and magnificent in its fauna and flora.

The interpretation tour is conducted by a knowledgeable guide that can answer your questions and take you to the prettiest spots. These spots include the Three Rondavels (three iconic mountain heads that stand tall and erect, generally rounded with a little point at the top of each). The Kadishi Tufa Waterfall is also on the list of attractions on one of these boat cruises. This is a rare living waterfall that is around 660 feet (or 200 metres) high, making it the world’s second-largest tufa fall. A tufa fall refers to millions of years of calcium build-up that forms a hard outer shell, with the water running beneath it. Passers-by quickly notice that the rock face, eroded by generations of powerful water, now resembles a weeping face and the water its endless tears.

Along the way, you will likely want to explore parts of the area on foot, breathe in the fresh Limpopo air and taking photographs against extraordinary backdrops. This area has an abundance of animal life, and bird watchers will be particularly well rewarded with exciting finds.

Bring along plenty of high-factor sunscreen, comfortable shoes, and a cap to protect your face and eyes from the sun. Drinking water will be provided on the tour. There is a little curio shop at eKhaya Bush Villa for those that want a keepsake of their Blyde River Canyon adventure.
