Blyde Wilderness Lodge: Along the Panorama Route


An exciting and impressive day on the panoramic route: Drie Rondavels/Three Sisters and Lowveld View with fantastic views into the Blyde River Canyon. Entertaining water games at the Bourke's Luck Potholes. Awesome rock washouts. Adults and children climbing through the rocks with great pleasure.

Berlyn Falls and Lisbon Falls: This is how we imaginated waterfalls in Africa.

God's Window and Wonder View: No view today. Ride in the clouds, fog and rain since noon.

Short stop in Graskop. Typical small town. Two/three streets, one-storey buildings, many shops and restaurants. Tourism stimulates business.

Through Pilgrim's Rest over the Robbers Pass and then along the route already traveled yesterday to the north (via the Abel Erasmus Pass).

Finally wildlife (monkey horde, zebras and giraffes) on the way to the lodge.

Dinner outside. Cozy. Surprisingly the employees do some birthday dancing and singing for somebody who's sitting next table.
