This mountain range is beautiful. Just keep driving and be in wonder at the sites and the view. There are a number of good spots along the way for photographic opportunities. We stopped many times and the scenery never disappointed.

Spend a day driving the loop from Hazyview to the three rondells & back to Pigrim's rest on the dirt road- great views, peace & quiet. We've just returned from a 19 day tailor-made tour of KwaZulu Natal, Swaziland & Kruger. Rosemary at Independent Traveller put it together for us- an amazing deal & such attention to detail & our...

Quite a tourist attraction. Safe and plenty of stalls to get some SA souvenirs. I got 2 sets of 6 placemats. Initially R200 per pack. I got 2 for R300. Bargain as you go along :-)

The visit to Blyde River Canyon was great. The view of the Three Roundavels is unprecedented and under appreciated. There weren't a whole lot of people around and for 10Rand per car, it's a steal. We loved every minute, it's highly recommended!

Haze and smoke can be a bit of a pain as the view isn't as clear. Regardless of this, the area is beautiful, well maintained and amazing for taking photos. A must see when in the area and well worth the drive. This was one of our favourite places on the Panorama Route. For more tips and advice on the... More

The view from the look out point makes you feel as if you are standing at the edge of the world especialy if it's misty. On clear days the view is amazing and the Lowveld extends into the far distance. Great for photos and a few silent moments

This is one of South Africa's treasure's that you don't hear about until you get to ZA, but is certainly a must. The views of the Three Roundavels are spectacular and the canyon is ridiculously green, something you don't really see at the Grand or Fish River canyons. The entrance fee is also a great price, and there are souvenir... More

Rocks shaped like Rondawels and named after the chiefs most troublesome wives. There is an entrance fee for cars only - I reckon if we were overseas we would be paying to see such majestic sites. Panoramic views and a great place to take pictures. REMEMBER the gate closes at five so get there on time
