We have done this road quite a few time. The scenery is good the cannon is worth a few pics, but most of all it's great on a motorcycle.

A lovely drive and view of the Lowveld. Signage should be further away from attraction, allowing for sufficient time to stop.

The Panorama route to Long Tom Pass is an amazing winding road with a spectacular scenery. Guys afraid of heights should think twice. David’s knuckles is not marked but there is a narrow parking place of around 20 meters where some ladies sell souvenirs.

This is Mpumalanga nature at its best. The roads are good but winding along. Drive slowly and enjoy the views
