Adults pay R17 and kids up to 12 yrs pay R12. A very impressive view from different sites. We arrived at 16.15 and there were few people. They close at 17.00 - souvenirs sales at entrance. Bathroom at the end of the parking lot, one...More

It was really worth it. The walk to Gods Window was quite short and it was a beautiful site. Even walked to the top through the Rainforest. Those views are also worth the long climb up the stairs.

We have loved visiting Gods window over the years but have felt that it looked really sad this time around. There seemed to have been a fire that has destroyed the lush vegetation that used to be there and it doesn’t really have the same...More

Visiting GOD’s window on the panoramic route in the Blyde Canyon was experiencing one of the best views of nature. The pictures don’t do much justice. Must visit for any traveler who loves nature.

Quicker visit then we thought. Pretty easy walk upstairs with a few view lookouts and you can continue to a lil walk in rainforest. Beautiful sunbirds. Shops and clean bathrooms.

After parking in a small shopping mall of vendor stalls, we hiked up a short distance to see the view from the top. One could see a great distance across the valley and surrounding plain. Wow!

This viewpoint is a favourite among South African locals and offers great views over the vast expanses of bush below. At R17 per person, it is a very affordable stop along the Panorama Route. If one arrives before 7 AM as we did, one can...More

Worth the visit on a clear day. The walk is not for the "unfit". The rain forest is beautiful and very romantic but quite short.

God's Window is breathtaking. You can see the hills and mountains from high up. I can just imagine that that could be God's view too! It is quite a climb to the top but there are benches along the way to stop and rest. There...More

Amazing views of the surrounding canyon and valley. Worth a stop at this place on your way either to Kruger or Nelspruit.
