Visit the Blyde River Canyon by boat followed by a visit to the Moholoholo Rehabilitation Centre where you’ll learn about the rehabilitation techniques and treatment of injured, poisoned and abandoned animals & birds of prey.
Departing from Hazyview at around 9.00 am we travel north towards Hoedspruit to The Blyde River Canyon for an alternative look at the Dam. We board the boat at 11.00 am for an interpretive tour with a qualified site guide who will show you the rare, living Kadishi Tufa waterfall, which at 200m (660 feet) is the 2nd tallest Tufa waterfall on earth.
An abundance of wildlife: Including hippos, crocodiles, primates and a diversity of birdlife, will keep you enthralled while learning more about the natural history of the Blyde Canyon. The Dam is the 3rd largest in the world and is the largest “green canyon” due to the subtropical foliage.

Their experts will take you around the centre where some of the animals and birds might be handled depending on their condition.
