One of the most, if not the most spectacular spot on the panorama route. It is spectacular. Looks a little like the Grand Canyon but than in Africa. Impressive how nature has formed these canyons. We also saw baboons !!! Icing on the cake.

What a story the landmarks tell, very accessible and affordable. What a site, including the stream at the foot of the Roundavels.

had to agree with our pre teens, this site does not seem to even to have a worthwhile visit in the first time, maybe it you have lots of time.

I highly recommend you visiting this canyon. Be careful as there are no railings and the edges are very steep but the view is spectacular.

After viewing the Three Roundavels, I better appreciated the 'roundavel' design of many of the round lodges in South Africa.

We had a misty day but despite this you could appreciate the beauty of the area. Peaceful and quiet - a truly spectacular view.
