South Africa's Panorama Route includes historic mining towns, beautiful waterfalls, lofty views, a gorgeous canyon, and lots of wildlife. The mining town of Graskop serves as an ideal starting point for a trip around the Mpumalanga's Panorama Route, and nearby attractions include the viewpoint called God's Window (featured in the film “The Gods Must Be Crazy”). From there, you can enjoy the views over Blyde River Canyon and see the collection of dramatic waterfalls near Sabie.
As the name suggests, the Panorama Route is known primarily for its scenery. There is abundant wildlife in the region, too, so be on the lookout. Fall and winter are the best times to see wildlife, when there are fewer leaves on the trees.
Begin your tour of the Panorama Route in Graskop. It's easiest to explore the area if you have a car, although you can reach certain points along the route via bus.
