Panaroma route is like half heaven, the area is beatiful with many attraction areas, such as God's window in Graskop, the pinnacle, berlyn waterfalls, and many attracting areas, the restaurants in Graskop are also excellent and you have access to many stalls to buy interesting stuff, such as beads. I also enjoyed lunch at berlyn peacock tavern 10km away from... More

We did this drive on route to Kruger Park from Johannesburg. Unfortunately the day was a bit cloudy so some of the views were not quite as spectacular as they could have been. Hint: our guide said it was best to check weather conditions as mist is often a problem that obscures views. That being said it is a wonderful... More

The Panorama rout is known for its scenic drives but why not try a walk. We did the leopard trail at the 3 rondavels down the canyon and the loerie trail at the Bridal Veil Falls in Sabie. This last one was great and actually an unknown walking gem if you like walks of 3 or 4 hours. Most people... More

A day away from Savanna private game reserve as we were there for five days. The canyon was closed due to a strike and we had heavy smoke from bush fires. A great trip with Bert as our driver and very informative guide, he was sorry about the smoke and strike. Great pancakes in Graskop. Interesting to see another side... More

Plan for a long day drive trip, lots to see. pick a day with good weather and visibility as the pot holes can get bad at times, avoid the R535 at all costs. pack a picnic and easy to find a spot around lunch time.

The waterfalls were great even though it was winter and very little water. Maria Shrives was a very small waterfall and not sign posted but very worth it - is quite isolated. Roads can be challenging - miss a pothole.

What a disgrace that strikes prevents tourists from enjoying nature. We could not visit the Blyde River look out point, 3 rondawels or bourke's luck as all was locked due to strike. Luckily God's window was open to the holiday makers.
