Panorama Tour

Explore one of South Africa’s most picturesque routes with an experienced guide as you take a tour of the area’s many natural wonders. You will see The Pinnacle Rock towering 30m above the forest as well as God’s Window, one of South Africa’s most famous vantage points (on clear days you can see as far as Mozambique). Take in the Blyde River Canyon and the Three Rondawels, massive spirals of dolomite that rise from the far wall of the canyon. Other highlights include the spectacular Lisbon Falls and unusual rock formations of Bourke’s Luck Potholes. Lunch is enjoyed halfway through the journey (own account) and there’s a chance to explore the colourful craft markets en-route.

​The Pinnacle

The Pinnacle Rock is a breathtaking sight – this freestanding quartzite buttress towers 30m above a lush indigenous woodland, close to the quaint forestry town of Graskop.

God's Window

God’s Window is a vantage point set in the Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve that offers panoramic views over the lush Lowveld. On clear days, you can see as far as the Kruger Park and Mozambique.

Lisbon Falls

The spectacular Lisbon Falls were named by the Portuguese settlers who came to this area in the late 1800s after gold was discovered at nearby Barbeton and Pilgrim's Rest. This lush area offers unforgettable views and a vast array of birds.

Bourke's Luck Potholes

These large, cylindrical potholes have been created by the churning whirlpools that occur when the Treur River plunges into the Blyde River Canyon. They are named after Tom Bourke, a miner who correctly predicted that the area would yield large deposits of gold, but never struck it rich as the gold was discovered just south of his claim.

Blyde's River Canyon

Blyde River Canyon is one of the largest canyons on the planet and the second largest in Africa. Renowned for its red sandstone cliffs and lush subtropical foliage, this natural marvel stretches for 26km and is 762m deep on average.

Three Rondavels

The Three Rondavels, also known as the Three Sisters, are spectacular geological formations that stand 700m tall above the surrounding landscape. These eye-catching peaks are located along Mpumalanga's Panorama Route and are named after the rondavel, a traditional beehive-shaped hut.

 

A natural wonder, the Pinnacle Rock is a freestanding quartzite buttress that towers above the indigenous forest 6km north of Graskop.

God's Window

God’s Window is a vantage point surrounded by canyons, rock formations and waterfalls that offers panoramic views over the lush Lowveld.

Lisbon Falls

The majestic Lisbon Falls are located in a bowl of hills just outside the Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve. This scenic spot offers abundant birdlife including tiny brightly coloured sunbirds.

Bourke's Luck Potholes

Bourke’s Luck Potholes are located 35km north of Graskop. These natural water features mark the beginning of the Blyde River Canyon and have been carved into the rock over centuries by the eddying whirlpools of the Treur River.

Blyde's River Canyon

The Blyde River Canyon is one of South Africa’s most remarkable natural features. Located in Mpumalanga, this 26km long chasm forms the northern section of the Drakensberg escarpment.

Three Rondavels

Three spectacular summits which are round at the base and rise to a conical roof-like peak can be seen along Mpumalanga’s Panorama Route. These distinctive geographical formations are called the Three Rondawels and they derive their name from a traditional South African hut shaped like a beehive.
