Always so good going to God's window. The climb up to God's window is through a rain forest so having a light jacket comes in handy. Also ensure you are dressed comfortable for the hike up. Would recommend gym gear.

This place is a disgrace to Mpumalanga tourism. Lots of staff but they are all lying around doing nothing. The place is dirty and unkempt. We had international guests and were totally embarrassed. Bathrooms are disgusting. A beautiful natural wonder left to go to ruins.
