Blyde Dam Boat Cruise BCS

Swadini, Hoedspruit

Activity Description

Blyde Canyon Safaris, together with the Moletele community, offer scenic boat trips on the Blyde Dam. This is your opportunity to see the famous Three Rondawels and the Blyde River Canyon from the angle it’s supposed to be seen: while you’re on the water, at the base of the towering mountains that form these breathtaking sights. Tick off those last couple of birds that have been eluding your bird list and enjoy seeing the hippo’s and crocodiles that make this dam their home.

We are passionate about nature and preserving the few untouched pieces that remain in South Africa. We aim to offer everyone the opportunity to experience the beauty that the Lowveld has to offer. We run several activities and excursions and through our sister company, Blyde Adventure Camp, adventure and leadership camps for large groups.

We offer daily trips at 9am, 11am, 1pm and 3pm. Join one of our trips or book the entire boat for yourself. Use our friendly online booking system on this website, or contact our office to make your booking.

Customer Reviews

It was a beatyfull boattrip! Some Drinks on Bord and ist's perfekt! - Tina Kross

The boat trip itself was very pleasant and worthwhile. I am a bit disappointed in the condition of the tar road and information centre, seeing that we also pay a R 30 pp entrance fee to get to the boat trip in the first place. The restrooms there also don't have water and are not serviced every day. You need to flush the toilet with a bucket of water. Prepare to experience Africa in it's rarest form! - Lionel Van Dyk

Beautiful experience, very knowledgeable guide. I would recommend a trip. - Ashraff Khan
