Mountainous terrain, misty forests, bushveld & endless views are the compelling features of this region. For sheer scenic beauty, few parts of the Southern African continent can compare with the Great Escarpment, a spectacular wonderland of buttresses, strangely sculpted peaks and deep ravines where rivers & tributaries run through verdant valleys. The Blyde River, over centuries carved a canyon that now ranks as one of Africa's great scenic splendours.
