We loved the views of the canyon and we felt this was the best attraction on the panoramic route. It is a pity that there are no ''longer'' walks around the canyon (like at the Grand Canyon). If you don't want to pay for the view you can stop at a look-out at the panoramic route and enjoy the Blyde... More

We where there in some foggy weather so the views where a little off (we saw about 2,5 roundavels max :)), but still a must see!

We were doing a tour of the waterfalls and visited this one. Well worth visiting. I don't feel that as you have to pay to visit this tourist site, the public toilets could be improved. Two ladies toilets, with no running water apart from an outside tap, and scores of tourist buses, is not really acceptable. We visited waterfalls that... More

As we came along the road from Graskop, just past the Lowveld view site we got our first glimpse of the magnificent Three Roundavels. Entrance was a mere ZAR20.00 per person which is in our opinion nothing in comparison to the glorious views of the Blyderiver Canyon, the three Roundavels and the Blyderivierpoortdam. The parking area is a short drive... More

There are 2 areas to really take in the views of Blyde Canyon. My husband sat at the edge of the rock in this photo for a fantastic background view. If you're not afraid of heights, this place makes you feel humble and appreciative of the amazing natural sites in South Africa. Great location for photos.

Absolutely beautiful view of the Three Roundavels. Well worth the price getting in. Little to no information about why these three mountains have this name. Also no coffee shop, would have been nice to have a drunk and look at the view.

The views are amazing and the surrounding area so beautiful. The area is well cared for and we did not mind paying the entrance fee (discount for pensioner). Worth the detour to get there.

The Three Roundavels is incredible. Never had I seen such a sight. The viewpoint from the top is spectacular, the sight will take your breath away. It's easy to get to, there's a car park quite close and it's just a short walk from the car park. Try and avoid being there when the tourist buses are there as they... More
