The Panorama Route along the Mpumalanga escarpment is usually visited as an add-on to a safari. If you're travelling between Johannesburg and the Kruger National Park by road, you can detour via the Panorama Route. This will extend the road trip to about 9 hours, so we recommend overnighting along the way. If you don't mind the long road trip and enjoy taking in dramatic scenery, a detour along the Panorama Route is well worth it.
The focus of a visit to the Panorama Route is the scenic splendour of this area. Driving along the edge of the escarpment, there are multiple viewpoints looking out onto the adjacent Lowveld of the Mpumalanga Province.
The most well-known viewpoints are The Pinnacle, God's Window, Lowveld View and the Three Rondawels which looks over the beautiful Blyde River Canyon. Other attractions include a variety of waterfalls, some of which require a minor entrance fee, local arts and craft markets and the unusual rock formations carved by the upper Blyde River at Bourke's Luck Potholes.
The Panorama Route is well worth a visit, especially if you are planning to self-drive and have the time to spend at least one night in the area.
We have no scheduled tours or safaris to the Panorama Route but can include one on a tailor-made South African itinerary. We recommend spending at least 2 nights along the Panorama Route.
