Jacques Crafford has been travelling to some of the most beautiful places in South Africa. Watching his video is giving us serious South Africa travel goals!
Jacques Crafford is a travel photographer and videographer, he has been sharing some amazingly breathtaking footage of places in South Africa we would never have guessed are in South Africa. Jacques showcases places that are almost too beautiful to be real.
But they are real! And they are on our door step! Well maybe not that close but definitely close enough to hop in a car and have an epic road trip while heading to some truly beautiful locations. Today we are sharing a video Jacques did of the Panorama Route in Mpumalanga.
The Panorama Route is a scenic road in South Africa connecting several cultural and natural points of interest. This route, steeped in the history of South Africa, is situated in the Mpumalanga province. The route is centred around the Blyde River Canyon, the world’s third largest canyon, and features numerous waterfalls, one of the largest afforested areas in South Africa
The route ends at the Limpopo boarder close to the Echo Caves. The area is also home to South Africa’s wild horse population. This footage is mostly of the Blyde River.
While it is difficult to compare canyons world-wide, Blyde River Canyon is one of the largest canyons on Earth, and it may be the largest ‘green canyon’ due to its lush subtropical foliage. It has some of the deepest precipitous cliffs of any canyon on the planet. It is the second largest canyon in Africa, after the Fish River Canyon, and is known as one of the great wonders of nature on the continent.
