Blyde Dam Boat Cruise - Pensioner

Swadini, Hoedspruit

Activity Description

Please note that this service and special price is only valid for pensioners

Blyde Canyon Safaris, together with the Moletele community, offer scenic boat trips on the Blyde Dam. This is your opportunity to see the famous Three Rondawels and the Blyde River Canyon from the angle it’s supposed to be seen: while you’re on the water, at the base of the towering mountains that form these breathtaking sights. Tick off those last couple of birds that have been eluding your bird list and enjoy seeing the hippo’s and crocodiles that make this dam their home.

We are passionate about nature and preserving the few untouched pieces that remain in South Africa. We aim to offer everyone the opportunity to experience the beauty that the Lowveld has to offer. We run several activities and excursions and through our sister company, Blyde Adventure Camp, adventure and leadership camps for large groups.

We offer daily trips at 9am, 11am, 1pm and 3pm. Join one of our trips or book the entire boat for yourself. Use our friendly online booking system on this website, or contact our office to make your booking.

Customer Reviews

What an amazing experience we will do it again - zelda

Fantastic experience all round. We were made to feel welcome enjoyed the trip thoroughly. Will definitely recommend the trip with Jason and his team. - Henry

Beautiful trip, lovely scenery. We saw a fish eagle and hippos! We had the misfortune to be on a cruise with a group from a tour bus so the three of us had to sit in widely separated spots and the bus group obnoxiously drowned out tbe tour guide. So try to find a sailing that does not include a bus tour group! It's a long steep walk from the boat to the parking lot. Blyde Canyon is beautiful and it's worth the effort. - Pam Bennett

Excellent - Gerhard Vosloo
