Blyde Canyon Lower
is located in the Limpopo Northeast area of the Northeast region in South Africa.

The area below the Mpumalanga Drakensburg mountains and the mouth of the Blyde River Canyon is a broad expanse of undulating Lowveld containing a mix of modest wildlife reserves and large commercial farms. Although this is by no means a wilderness area, the mountain backdrop is extremely pretty.

The main reason to stay here is to break the road journey between the scenic drive of the Blyde Canyon Upper area to the west and the wildlife lodges of Kruger to the east.

Most self-drivers treat this as a single overnight stop, although there are activities in the area which might warrant a longer stop, notably ballooning and river rafting.


Moholoholo Forest Camp .. is perhaps the most interesting accommodation option in the area, a reasonably comfortable safari style lodge which offers modest guided walking safaris and, most importantly visits to its own wild animal sanctuary.

Zuleika House ... is another nice option, this time situated on a large commercial farm estate.
