This is a must do at Blyde River Canyon. Bring binoculars if you can to spot some amazing animals and something warm. Bring water and a snack. Make a bathroom stop before. Be warned, you do get a charge to go into the park before you go on the boat

Great experience indeed our guide Thulani was excellent I got educated in just 1h30 ride he explained everything and even educated us about the canyon itself, big ups to his great knowledge of the canyon and the captain of the boat was excellent he managed to spot a crocodile in the river and gave us the most memorable experience of our lifetime ❤️❤️❤️. And I'm most definitely going to do it again when I come to mpumalanga for my vacation.

The guide made the trip so interesting. Knowledgeable on many aspects of life in and around the dam and spontaneous information. The ride was so peaceful and relaxing. I could have stayed on that boat for a few more hours. Thoroughly enjoyed every moment and well worth the drive out. A MUST do. Thank you
