Explore Limpopo and Mpumalanga Provinces with a tour of the Panorama Route. There is no doubt that this array of viewpoints and historic attractions will remain a highlight of your visit of South Africa.
Blyde River Canyon
Blyde River Canyon is one of the longest green canyon (26km) in the world and the second deepest canyon in Africa, known as “The River of Joy”. Its towering cliffs rise nearly 800 m above the winding valley and it is one of the most visited natural attractions in South Africa.
This is one of the wonderful sights of the Blyde River Nature Reserve. The Potholes are sculpted by centuries of flowing water, and by the confluence of the two rivers– the Treur River and the Blyde River.
God’s Window is one of the most spectacular views which form part of the Panorama Route. The natural wonders range from cascading waterfalls to impressive mountain gorges. The majestic cliffs plunge down 700 m and on a clear day you will be able to see far to the famous Kruger National Park and towards the Lebombo Mountain on the South African border to Mozambique.
The Berlin Falls are the most beautiful waterfalls in Mpumalanga and the highest falls in South Africa. They are also fascinating because of their unique shape: The Sabie River drops down from a narrow gully and then spreads out on the way down to look like a flickering candle from the distance.
Graskop is one of the smallest towns in Mpumalanga Province and it was set up in the 1880s as a Gold Mining camp, but now serves as a tourist destination. Graskop is an Afrikaans name which translates as “Four Grassy Peaks”. There are lots of restaurants to choose from for lunch; a silk weaving workshop and many souvenir shops.
