Stay in the best B&B near Blyde River Canyon in South Africa

Accommodation at the B&B Zur alten Mine near the Blyde River Canyon in South Africa

Once your next Facebook profile picture is taken with the Blyde River Canyon in the background, it's time to head back to your hotel! We advise you to book a chalet at Zur alten mine.
