We stopped at the Pinnacle, Bourke's Luck Potholes, the God's Window, Three Rondevales and Berlin Falls. We love the tranquility at Pinnacle, we felt spoilt as we the only tourists at that time. Bourke Luck... 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

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
