Fodor's Expert Review Lisbon Falls

Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve Nature Preserve/Wildlife Refuge

You'll find more gorgeous waterfalls clustered on the Panorama Route than anywhere else in southern Africa. Just north of Graskop, the dramatic falls are set in a bowl between hills just outside the Blyde (Motlatse) Canyon Nature Reserve, sending cascades 120 feet onto rocks below, throwing up spray over a deep pool. Named nostalgically by European miners who came here looking for gold in the late 1800s, this is a good kick-off point for the whole Panorama Route. Hike down to the pool on a path from the parking area, and enjoy a picnic.
