A scenic spectacle, the Blyde River Canyon lies within
the 35,000 hectares of the Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve, a 57 km belt which
runs north from Graskop along the escarpment. Owing to variations in altitude,
temperature and-rainfall, a great diversity of vegetation occurs. On the
high-lying southern section which has a high rainfall, extensive grassy slopes
and dense areas of rain forest with yellow wood, boekenhout, forest silver
trees, etc. and ferns are to be found. The central area has mixed Sour Bush veld
and thorn trees, while the northern area and foothills are known as the Lowveld
Sour Bush veld.
