Nice and repetitive

The views are great, but far away and therefor somewhat the same. Make sure to walk up to the little forest on top of God's Windows, it's a must!

This is a popular route for visitors and one always find tourists at the Pinnacle or Gods Window, or Bourke's luck Potholes, or any of the waterfalls, or the Blyde River Canyon. The Pinnacle has been spruced up concerning entrance and ablutions that are clean. Gods Window ablution area has also been updated but shows some signs of neglect. The... More

All the sights from the numerous Waterfalls to Gods Window to 3 Rondavels are truly magnificent and worth a visit. The roads range from good to excellent condition. What's the problem then?? The total Africanization of the whole area and the total neglect and litter. The grass on the side of the roads looks like it has never been cut,... More

It was the best elevated unobstructed view of the area. Enjoyed the cascades of Lisbon Falls. The confluence of Blyde (Fortune) and Treur (Sorrow) river was also an exciting trek.

Every view was stunning, particularly the view point about 3km from God's Window. God's Window itself was a little bit disappointing, however. The Mac Mac pools were an amazing visit and I wish I stayed in the area just to be able to picnic there on Sundays. Take your picnic basket and swimming costume!

If you are into heights then this is for you! The route is good quality and the heights below are ever green. Wonderful experience!

I took so many pictures I almost ran out of space. The entire trip on this route my face was practically pressed up against the window with camera in hand snapping photos like every 5 seconds. I couldn't get enough of how beautiful the jagged mountains, the rugged landscape and many tiny waterfalls were. We stopped at a few of... More

Beautiful route and you can make a perfect full day visit in combination with the blyde river canyon views. The tar route is mostly very good (only a few potholes) and there are some magnificent views and also some beautiful waterfalls (we only did see the Mac mac waterfall)

Starting from Graskop I'll comment on each stop as experienced April 2015. I'll leave out the waterfalls since that's not really everybody's cup of tea and some are quite far off the beaten track. Anyway... 1. The Pinnacle - R10 entrance per car is well worth it. Stunning views and Pinnacle itself is quite unique. 2. God's Window - R10... More

Nothing to dislike, we had a great day and I must say a great guide who went out of his way to allow us to appreciate the views, the culture and the history.
