This route includes amazing scenery and wonderful places to visit. It is worth stopping at all the attractions like God's Window, Bourkes Luck Potholes, the view points at Blyde River Canyon as each of them have breathtaking views. It is very worthwhile to give yourself plenty of time to stop and explore. The entry fees are very reasonable and I... More

The view from Three Rondavels were amazing -skip "Gods Window" not even close to the view you get from Three Rondavels.

The Panorama Route offers a range of various view points. The main view point gave us impressions similar, although not even near the magnitude, to the ones we had visiting The Grand Canyon in the US, a wonder in nature so rare to find. Breathtaking views indeed. Another view point on the route is named "God's Window". Such a name... More

FD private excursion visiting Bourke's Luck Potholes, without doubt a major highlight, together with the likes of the Three Rondawels, God's Window, the Blyde River Canyon and numerous magnificent waterfalls... Amazing excursion and stop for lunch in Groskop. Our guide was excellent (Themba Nkuna)... Thanks a lot for everything... you made our visit and unforgettable experience!!

This was my first time on this route and it is breathtaking a must see in SA. I saw on previous reviews someone did not like the pine trees on the route but it is part of this area and critcal for the south african wood industry and it is beuatiful.

The Panorama route is a wonderful way to view the landscape. From gardens to mountains to views at the potholes and ending at Gods window . Its a fantastic way to spend a full day road trip. I loved viewing the mountain formations along the way, stopping at waterfalls meeting the locals. I highly recommend the Pano route when taking... More

We did part of the Panoramic Route including God's Window, World's View, Berlin Falls and Lisbon Falls. It's an ideal time to get souvenirs and they don't take offence at haggling. We managed to get the little stone carved animals for 10 rand each (we bought 20) which is about 58p each and I took them to work instead of... More

The Mpumalanga Panorama Route takes one to the place where the sun rises, as it has been named so aptly. Therefore it is best to drive early from the Nelspruit or White River areas towards places like God's Window, Pinnacle Rock and the potholes at Bourke's Luck to see it in the freshness of early morning before the heat brings...
