Antelope, small animals, the full range of South Africa's primate family and a variety of birds live on the reserve, along with an abundance of flowering plants, orchids, lichens,mosses and montane forest.
The much-photographed Three Rondavels are a trio of rocky outcrops that have eroded in the shape of traditional round Zulu or Xhosa tribal huts. Two other favourite visual treats for visitors to indulge in from the road running above the canyon are World's End and Lowveld view.
Popular activies include the circular drive, short hikes and and overnight trails, kloofing, microlighting and leisurely boat trips that take in the wild array of wildlife within the canyon, as well as some of the best white water in SouthAfrivca.
