Also known as the Motlatse Canyon Nature Reserve, this breathtakingly beautiful 71,660 acres of red sandstone mountains, gorges, and grassland stretches 60 km (37 miles) north of Graskop, to the Abel Erasmus Pass.

Carved out of almost 2.5 km (1.5 miles) of red sandstone, it’s the world’s third biggest and greenest canyon, on account of its lush evergreen vegetation.
