“Great roads”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

We had the best time driving the panoramic route. The scenery is stunning and apart from a few potholes the roads are great for just cruising at high speeds along the mountain passes. We did over 800km in 1 day..... and stopped at most of the touristy spots!

“Panoramic Route”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Spectacular scenery with good roads and excellent view points. Buy your souveniers at the stalls here as they are much cheaper than the stalls elsewhere in SA.

“Must do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

If you are at the southern part of Kruger, take a day off and do the Panorama route up along Blyde Canyon. his drive will provide sheer natural beauty along what is the 3rd biggest canyon in the world. It is however greener than the Grand Canyon so do not expect the red and orange colors but has amazing views at several pull-outs along the Panorama route. God's Window, Bourke's Potholes, Three Rodavels were among our favorites. DO NOT MISS THIS IF YOU GO TO KRUGER PARK.

“You want be disappointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Even though it was a very hot day close to 110 degrees we opted fro the slow route to Kruger so we could see the attractions and scenery along the way. It was well worth the deviation off the main highway. Some beautiful scenery, mountains and the streams and gorges were excellent sites to see.You can also see all of thsi with very little cost as there is a small fee to get into some of the sites.
