Panorama Route – Mpumalanga
One breathtaking view after another – that’s South Africa’s famous Panorama Route, where you’ll experience mountains, sky, forests and the truly impressive Blyde River Canyon, one of the world’s largest canyons. The small town of Graskop is the gateway to the Route. It’s a good place to set up base. Scenic landmarks with evocative names like God’s Window, Wonder View, the Pinnacle, Bourke’s Luck Potholes and the Three Rondawels beckon. The awe-inspiring Lisbon Falls, Berlin Falls and Mac Mac Falls are also just a short drive away. Adding some historical romance into the mix, half an hour’s drive from Graskop, the goldrush town of Pilgrim’s Rest gives you the chance to relive the 1873 goldrush in surroundings of unparalleled beauty.
