Bring you camera, binoculars, sun hat and sun cream. You are welcome to bring along snacks, cooldrinks and water but no alcohol is allowed on the boat. Wear comfortable cloths and bring along something warm to wear in the winter months.

Enjoy the splendor of the 3rd largest Canyon and the largest green Canyon in the world due to the lush subtropical foliage. You will see the rare living Kadishi Tufa waterfall and the Three Rondawels while seeing wild and bird life living in the Canyon.

It is well worth continuing onto the Blyde Dam Interpretation Centre. There is a short hike to view the dam from a different angle and you can also stop over and walk down on to the Blyde Dam wall.
