2 big ones

Blyde River Canyon and the world's largest baobab tree. Enough for a day

After overdose of African wildlife we left the Kruger National Park and went to see other attractions of the region. Blyde River canyon is one of the world’s largest canyons. Weirdly located on top of mountain ridge (some interesting geomorphic activity must be happening here), it is a beautiful place with great vistas.

Slightly smaller :-), but still big, was the second attraction: the world’s largest baobab tree and largest broadleaf tree in the world, for that matter. And one of the oldest trees as well. Estimated between 2000 and 6000 years old!

And some more epic scenery, which South Africa delivers so effortlessly.
