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

Blyde Mountain Country House`s sweeping terrace offers a uniquely romantic lookout onto the dramatic canyon cliffs of the Drakensberg. Few of those who stayed at Blyde Mountain Country House will forget the views of this particular section of the northern Drakensberg which are nothing short of stunning.

When in season you can taste the local lemons, oranges, sensationally fibreless mangos, papayas, guavas, litchis and indigenous marulas as featured in your breakfast fruit salad.

The complex is surrounded by a fascinating selection of bird-inhabited trees and bushes and a carefully balanced garden. The main hall exhibits local art, and there is a curio/craft shop. The atmospheric bar opens out onto the terrace.

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. Barbeque meals can be prepared in the secluded lapa.

The idyllic sounds of nature often prove the best of tranquilizers for those who came primarily to unwind.

Activities:

One can go white water rafting on the tumultuous river, or hike down the canyon slopes to watch the cormorants and observe and hear the lake's vociferous hippo population, or go on a cruise.

Birdspotting expeditions with a local expert in the canyon's higher reaches can be organised.

Or, reaching still higher, for truly panoramic views: how about a hot air balloon expedition or an elephant back safari? Of course, there are numerous game drives in the Kruger by day and night, you can go horse riding in the bush, or how about a game of golf at the Drakensig golf course ?

Local attractions include the Swadini Reptile Park, Moholoholo Animal Rehabilitation Centre (their documentary about animal orphans has been shown regularly on the Discovery Channel) and, the Kapama Cheetah project.

Those interested in the early days of the country's mining sector might enjoy a visit to Pilgrim's Rest.
