Overview
More
The Graskop Gorge lift Company (Pty) Ltd is the latest and most innovative tourism development in South Africa. Situated in Graskop Mpumalanga, along the Panorama Route, made famous for its natural beauty and world renowned viewing attractions such as God’s Window and the Blyde River Canyon. The Graskop Gorge Lift Company is your passage into the heart of one of Mpumalanga’s last forested wonderlands. Surrounded by towering cliffs cut back over time by the Motitsi river where its waters plummet 70m into the gorge below forming a natural barrier to all, except for the most adventurous. Your journey begins as you drop off the grassy cliff top plateau, in a custom designed 26 passenger viewing elevator, down along the cliff face descending into the cool mountain forest below. An extensive network of elevated walkways, suspension bridges and interactive exhibits will lead you along the forest trail, across the stream, keeping one engaged in this natural and pristine environment.

Wonderful views and a really fun experience. We were able to wander along a board walk at the bottom of the gorge and experience the beauty of the surrounding forest as well as watching the zip-liners and big-swingers above. The views from the lift and...More

The Graskop gorge is beautiful but to see it from the rainforest below was very special. Fantastic piece of engineering in the lift and 600m of decked walkway below combined with shear beauty of nature a must see when in the area.

A great day spent. Loved going down the lift and doing the tour of the little jungle in the gorge. Affordable, enjoyable, interesting, the flee market is a must if you love crafts, and the restaurant has the best pizza.

After getting cold feet from The Big Swing we went for the Gorge experience. You have to experience it to understand. The beautiful rain forest, the different species of plants and reptiles. It is amazing!!

Much is made about the shops and art gallery at the top and the glass lift itself. In reality it is all very underwhelming. The best thing about this lift is the boardwalk at the bottom of the gorge which is amazing. A lot of...More

The gorge lift down to the bottom is a fai efffly new attraction. It is a slow lift so you can see lots. A nice walkway around the bottom of the gorge with lots of information.

We are a snack and had coffee in the cafe - it was good. Can only suggest you call the venue to confirm what they could do for a special occasion.
