We arrive at Blyde River Canyon around midday. Here we will stop for about 20 minutes. You can take in the beautiful scenery of the Canyon and the 3 rondavels.
We continue our journey along the Panorama Route and make a lunch stop at Bourkes Luck Potholes.

Your room is fitted out with mosquito net draped four-poster beds a large fireplace and baths to drift away in. Relax in your private rim-flowing pool from where you can enjoy the endless views of the distant mountains and the valley below. Here is where the Sabie River flows and Longcrested eagles ride the afternoon thermals. Here it is tranquil, peaceful and beautiful. And it is just the two of you.
Excellent food is prepared by renowned chefs and served in an exotic candle-lit restaurant built on stilts alongside a small pond and overlooking a tropical garden. Dinners end in the cigar lounge that has its own magical ambiance.
