Private Blyde River Canyon / Panorama Route Tour

DAY TRIP
  • About 10 hours

Description

On this tour we visit places like Gods Window, Bourke’s luck, Wonder view, Three Rondavels and one of the amazing waterfalls on route (time-dependent).

Tours take place in an open-sided game vehicle, unless you are a small group that can use an LMV.

We can, however, take you to other amazing places our guide might know if such as Lone creek falls, gorge lift (time-dependent) or the Blyde Dam for an amazing dam cruise with the hippos (should you wish to take part in this). Just note that the Blyde River Dam boat cruise or gorge lift will be for your own cost, should you like to do this as well and that it may lead to missing some included viewpoints on the route due to timing.

Itinerary

To deepen your experience of the natural wonder, the visitor should take advantage of a guided Blyde River Canyon / Panorama route tour. You will spend a full day in the majestic Panorama route in an open-sided vehicle.

Your knowledgeable guide will interpret the landscape and give you a detailed explanation of the history of this amazing place.

A whole day in the Blyde River Canyon / Panorama route is a life-changing experience and this is what Kruger Park Tours offers you.

You will start the day from your accommodation in Hazyview, Nelspruit, White River in the early morning.

Places visited are Gods Window, Bourke’s luck, Wonder view, Three Rondavels and one of the amazing waterfalls on the route (time-dependent).

We can, however, take you to other amazing places our guide might know if such as Lone creek falls, gorge lift (time-dependent) or the Blyde Dam for an amazing dam cruise with the hippos (should you wish to take part in this).

By midday, we make a pit stop at a pancake house in Graskop (again your breath will be taken away) to eat something before setting off to explore more of the Blyde River Canyon / Panorama Route.

Our guides are all qualified and have years’ worth of experience in the area. They love nothing more than to share their knowledge with our guests and to make sure that you have the best sight-seeing experience possible.

Please bring comfortable shoes, warm and rainproof jackets, brimmed hat, sunscreen, charged cameras and binoculars.

Also, remember your mosquito repellent (preferably apply before the time, as some passengers might get an itchy nose if you apply it on the car), please take your antihistamine medication as well as malaria prophylaxis (although the risk of malaria is low, we do recommend taking precaution).

The vehicles we use are closed minivans or small cars. Summers months can get very hot and also wet all on the same day.

The driver will stop at restrooms and shops for meal purchases as part of the tour (at your own expense). Lovely souvenirs will make the experience something you will always remember.

This day trip is the ultimate perfection of excellence at a relaxed pace. Your wild and exciting adventure will end at about 17h00 when you will be dropped you off at your accommodation.

My review here is not about the actual Safari experience with Kruger Park Tours, but about the support and flexibility demonstrated by their team.

When we were exploring options for Safari tours, we had a list of must-haves on the tour. Johan was prompt with responses and was able to customise the Safari to our liking (including Kruger and Sabi Sands) , which made him our top choice.

We were scheduled to travel to South Africa in March 2020, but had to postpone (and eventually cancel) our plans due to the COVID-19 situation.
First, around early March, we reached out to Johan and his team to reschedule our trip to May 2020 (hoping that the situation would get better by then). Johan and Rochelle were very cooperative, and helped us reschedule our entire Safari.

However, as conditions didn't seem conducive to travel, after much deliberation, we had to cancel our trip. Since we had made an entire payment, we were worried, but Johan was very responsive , and assured us that he would refund us the amount entirely.

While I'm disappointed that I did not get a chance to experience the Safari with Kruger Park tours, I am very happy with their support and service throughout the booking process.

I hope to do a Safari with them when I plan a trip again.

I was overwhelmed going into this because there are so many options and price points for safaris, but Sonja and Johan were super helpful and responsive and put together a package that fit our budget and got all the things we wanted. I would definitely work with them again, and the trip was great.

Sonja and Johan were responsive and helpful throughout our preparations and trip process. We were making plans on the fly and were grateful to know that they would respond quickly and efficiently as our plans changed.

Impeccable service !!! Ecstatic experience !!!
From booking to the actual safari, Kruger Park Tours has been beyond excellent. They helped me find the right package deal within my budget and made sure I got the most out of it. Whether it was paperwork, payment or even activities to do in the Kruger, it was truly a smooth, hassle-free experience for me! I highly recommend KRUGER PARK TOURS for their top-notch customer service and I look forward to planning my next trip with them again!

Thank you for your friendly advice and all the help during our stay this past holiday. Due to the fact that you are so near the Kruger National Park you gave us valid information on the Park and the surroundings. We actually saw four of the great five. Our stay was a very memorable experience. Kind regards A C Wessels
