The Blyde River Canyon is a famous site with tourist visiting the Kruger National Park and its surroundings.
The canyon itself. There are waterfalls (Berlin and Lisbon), the Pinnacle, God's Window, Wonderview, Bourkes Luck Potholes (with a fascinating display of the wildlife and geology of the canyon) and several viewpoints, the best-known is The Three Rondawels/Three Sisters.
Many locals sell artwork here, for example the famous wooden giraffes. Prices are higher at more frequented sites and lower at spots off the main stream. I love the knobbly paper made from elephant dung. In Graskop on a side street just behind a bank (FNB) is the shop of the wildlife artist who sells lovely prints of animals and birds. From postcards to calendars.
