Three Rondavels View at Blyde River Canyon - South Africa

We passed through Blyde River Canyon in the afternoon on the way back from Kruger National Park in South Africa. It was a pretty amazing stop. A great road leads up through tiny communities selling oranges into high mountains, cliffs and gorges. Then you get to the canyon itself which is not very easy to access but has a succession of pullouts (some of them you have to pay for) with some spectacular views.

 

This is the three rondavels view. Rondavels are the small, round thatch houses that so many people live in there. They do actually look quite a lot like the rocks here.
