Within a 3-hr drive of Johannesburg, the Highveld drops away in a dramatic range of mountains & waterfalls to the Lowveld & the Kruger National Park. The Blyde River Canyon below the Escarpment is the world's 3rd largest natural canyon & the only major green canyon; steeped in history & folklore dating back to the days of the gold rush, the early pioneers & the thieves & scoundrels who were attracted to the area. Old hunting lodges & homesteads now welcome guests & offer a range of accommodation types. The tour allows time to explore this beautiful region prior to 3 nts on safari with all meals & game drives in 4x4 vehicles included. The final night in the charming village of Dullstroom enables you to relax & shake the dust out of your boots before a relatively short 3-hr drive to Johannesburg.
