Did this trip with our hosts from African Rock Lodge (they ROCK!). Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate when we got to God's Window due to mist, but the drive was great and highly enjoyable.

This is definitely worth doing one of the most beautiful and amazing places of south africa. Weather is nice and warm, it is something that you and your family can enjoy I sure did.

The weather was not in our favour to visit the sight named Gods Window, as the cloud cover was very low and threatened rain . However, the visit to what are called the Pot Holes, was well worth the time spent there, and these are not the kind which burst your tires. Try to imagine two rivers coming together, not... More

It was a wonderful drive seeing all of the canyon tops, and forest areas. God's Window was fogged in from a storm the night before, so that was a disappointment, check the weather before you drive the route because the deep canyon area's may be fogged out. Driving by myself, I went slower, so that I could see the wonderful... More

God was truly at work when he created the Panorama route. One should take their time whilst driving so as not to miss a thing. Wear comfortable shoes

Unfortunately God's Window was clouded, but the route and surroundings are magnificent. The route from Lydenburg to Sabie, Graskop and onwards is also worth the trouble.

It was well worth the money . A great way to see the natural beauty of this region. Our excursion took us to Bourke's Luck Potholes, God's window, 3 Rondavels, and the grandeur of many Falls, including MacMac, Lisbon, and Berlin Falls. My favorite was the Lone Creek Waterfall and The Pinnacle. Lunch was included at Krascop. A spectacular display... More

Many people tour this route, perhaps just ticking off the views and the waterfalls. Be selective and take a bit more time. We enjoyed Bourkes Luck PotHoles especially and the 3 Rondavels view is difficult to beat. There are many quiet stopping places on the route which are unnamed and worth a look. Also some of the best value wood... More

Instead of what we hoped were african panoramas, we got as-far-as-the-eye-could-see pine plantations! Even the 'select' tourist spots like waterfalls had pines upto the edge. There were even pines to see from the lookout at Blyde River - a very disappointing experience. Not worth doing this route.
