Blyde Canyon Nature Reserve Strategic Development Plan

A study was done of the Blyde River Canyon, its conservation value, the current management and the policies relevant to development and commercial operations within the Blyde Canyon Nature Reserve (BCNR).  To determine the potential for viable tourism opportunities, the regional tourism perspective, the status and trends of day visitor- and overnight facilities and tourism support services were analysed.  The potential for new tourism developments and operations within BCNR was then analysed before surveying their potential through a tour operator- and demand survey. After having determined the demand potential, it was compared with the proposed projects to project levels of usage and potential feasibility of each proposal.
