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.

We regret to inform you that we do not allow children under 2 years on the boat trip

Notes

The Blyde Canyon is the third largest canyon in the world and the largest green canyon in the world.
It is a place of pure untouched beauty and is best seen and experienced from the water on our comfortable, 12 seater pontoon boat. You will be guided and accompanied by our experienced skipper who is a born and bred Moletele with a wealth of knowledge and passion for the canyon.
