The Three Rondavels form three huge pinnacles of rock rising above the Blyde River canyon below.   Once known as the Three Sisters, this geological formation known today as The Three Rondavels, are one of many spectacular natural highlights found along Mpumalanga's Panorama Route.


Locals of South Africa know the rondavel as a traditional beehive-shaped hut which was built and used for centuries by indigenous people for their homes. If you're planning on going to the Kruger National Park, you'd know that some camp accommodation is in this very same rondavel hut style.

Have you ever wondered how these magnificent mountains were formed? Apparently erosion wore away the soft underlying stone, leaving exposed slate and quartzite that shape these dramatic rock formations.

Make sure you are safely grounded and wearing hiking shoes while standing at the viewpoint, especially as there's no rail, and then take in the incredible view with the canyon and the Blyde River dam way below you. Expect spectacular African sunsets if you're there as the sun goes down.
