Tours - Local

There is a lot to see and do in our immediate area. Here are just a few of the places, and guide prices (for 2011). More information and links can be found below. Prices by 2018 are UP (of course) by 50% to 300% depending on which venue you may be visiting. Tourists take courage, the numbers look big in Rands, but are quite reasonable once you convert back to Dollars, Pounds or Euros.

[DCF PAIN!] * - "Daily Car Fee" charges for day visitors (may vary at their will or whim). We joke that the chap in the animated image did not pay his DCF ... pain!!

Blyde River / Motlatse Canyon

"The Blyde River Canyon (renamed the Motlatse in recent years) is the third deepest canyon in the world (after the Grand Canyon in the western U.S. and Namibia's Fish River Canyon). It ranks as one of the most spectacular sights in Africa. This great Escarpment is the kind of place where brochures and guide books run out of original adjectives to describe the fresh mountain scenery and magnificent panoramic views over cliffs rising 600m-800m from the river bed. The entire canyon extends over twenty kilometres in length."
