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.

Nothing can ever detract from the beauty of nature.... but the council leaving half-fixed holes (large deep ones!) can put a damper on your trip when you need a new tyre

Very relaxing drive. Reminded me on some parts of Lake Tahoe or Pacific North West scenery. Nice drive from Krueger to Johannesburg

From all of the photographs that I have been shown the views here are spectacular. Unfortunately there was no chance that I could get there in my wheelchair.

This is a full day tour. We started at around 8 am and drove first to God's window where we had an amazing vista of a field of clouds from well above them. Next came the Byde River Canyon which is the second largest "living" canyon and the third largest Canyon in the world. We had a stunning panorama of... More

Tick the box to do this if you are on a South African holiday. Pick up a tourist map, and follow the well signposted viewing stops all along the route. Spectacular scenery, and birds to be seen on the way to each point. Most of the viewing places had a small charge, but it was negligible. Bourke's Luck potholes was... More
