Another lovely view across the canyon - one can see for miles. Well worth a visit and the entrance fee.

Seeing something the earth produced is always breathtaking. But this... all I can say is if you're in the area or not make a plan to see it, you will be in awe of the beauty!

Easy to reach along the Panorama route in Mpumalanga. Beautiful scenes from various points along the Escarpment. Parking is crowded. Thugs had taken over the toilet area and were locking the toilets requiring a payment to open them up. Use the toilet before you arrive...More

Grand Canyon is huge, Fish River Canyon is long and ancient but the view of three Rondavels of the Blyde River Canyon is prettier. The mountains and the river beneath are lovely emerald green, deep blue and different shades of several colours. Just fantastic. Unforgettable.

When you arrive at the Blyde River Canyon and you look across at the three Rondawels, you cannot help but wonder at the wonder of creation! Really beautiful. The three beauties stand out.

People talk about God's Window and some of the other viewing spots around the Panorama route - but this is the best. There is no better view down Blyde River Canyon and you will get plenty of epic Instagram-worthy pictures!

The Three Roundavels are part of an amazing landscape which cannot be done justice in photographs. It is well worth the effort to go there.

Famous view and worthwhile a drive. It's simply an amazing and superb view of the Blyde River Canyon. And when you're in the neighbourhood, visit the potholes, God's window, Lisbon falls and have lunch at the "Boskombuis". Great day guaranteed

Blyde River Canyon and the Three Rondavels (massive grass covered circular shaped rocks). Relatively easy access and views you will be hard pressed to beat anywhere on the planet!

That view is a little bit of paradise! Nature in all it's magnificence! It really does do my head in though when the staff employed at one of the most spectacular spots in our country have clearly no love, passion or interest in the tourists...More
