About Blyde Mountain Country House

Blyde Mountain Country Houses thatched buildings are tucked away between citrus and mango estates enhancing privacy and peacefulness.

Blyde Mountain Country House is located on the edge of Limpopo’s awesome Blyde River Canyon. Abounding in wildlife, it’s the world’s largest green canyon with a 33 km gorge and precipitous cliffs rising from the riverbed. The dizzying viewpoints - Bourke’s Luck Potholes, The Pinnacle, God’s Window, Three Rondavels - are all within easy reach.

This 29000 hectare nature reserve abounding in wildlife (leopard, cheetah, rhino, giraffe, hippo, small antelope), features a 33 km gorge with spectacular precipitous cliffs rising up to 800 m from the riverbed. The viewpoints (Bourke's Luck Potholes, The Pinnacle, God's Window, Three Rondavels), allowing the visitor full appreciation of the stunning visual drama that the canyon and its lake afford, are within easy reach.

ACCOMMODATION

There are five double rooms and two self-catering units on the premises. The spacious guestrooms, which are both intimate and comfortable, conjure up the latest word in contemporary organic design. All have en-suite bathrooms, satellite television, large king-sized beds, lofty ceilings with big fans and doors opening onto the garden and / or canyon views.

There are two separate units ideally suited for families with children.

FACILITIES

In the main building there is an exhibition hall displaying local art, as well as a curio / craft shop. The atmospheric bar opens out onto the terrace.

Sweeping terrace offers a uniquely romantic lookout onto the dramatic canyon cliffs of the Drakensberg. During happy hour over sundowners guests can witness the spectacle of the sinking changing their hue time and again.

The elevated pool by the baobab trees with yet more views toward the canyon offers a refreshing dip, and you can tan on the reclining chairs. BBQ meals can be prepared in the secluded lapa.

LOCATION

On the main R531 route from Lydenburg to Hoedspruit (only 16 km away), and a half hour’s drive from Kruger, Blyde Mountain Country House can be found easily without any detours. Its thatched buildings are tucked away between farming estates enhancing privacy and peacefulness.

ACTIVITIES

A 7 minute footpath takes you to the Blyde for hippo and crocodile spotting. The fish eagle, louries and hornbills find their habitat in the shrubs and trees on the riverbanks. There are over 200 bird species.

You can go white water rafting on the tumultuous river, or cruise the Blyde dam, or go canyon hiking, or venture out in a hot air balloon to watch the big five from above ! Of course there are game drives by day and night into the Kruger National Park, horse and elephant rides in the bush…or how about a game of golf at the Drakensig golf course.

Geographic), the Kapama Cheetah farm, etc. The country’s early mining days can be traced at Pilgrim’s Rest, picturesque Graskop is one of the best pancake stop-overs in the country.
