South Africa: Gorge-ous
If you’re searching for world-renowned dramatic landscapes, flora so green it’ll even see the Irish ‘green with envy’ and the perfect excuse to don your hiking boots, then a trip to the Blyde River Canyon, Mpumalanga, is just what the doctor ordered.
The Blyde River Canyon holds the title of the third-largest canyon (after the Grand Canyon and the Fish River Canyon in Namibia, which are both dry to the bone) and not forgetting the impressive number one spot as the largest green canyon in the world – your chance to see some floral species that can be found here, and only here.
Take in the seriously stunning Panoramic Route which will lead you through the rugged fresh mountain range of northern Drakensberg, not forgetting a memorable peek at the majestic view through God’s Window. Why the name you ask? Now, that’s something you have to experience first hand to truly discover the magnificence of this beauty. Awe-inspiring stuff.
