Tour description provided by Viator

The Panorama Route is a classic on any visit to the region. With its many scenic viewpoints, waterfalls, quaint villages and short walks it is a perfect day tour away from the heat of the Lowveld. Make sure to save some space in your suitcase for the local souvenirs and crafts that you can purchase along the way or in one of the small towns.
We pick you up from your hotel or lodge at around 7.30 am. Usually we will visit most of the sights listed below, some of which are subject to weather conditions:Blyde River Canyon is one of the longest green canyon (26km) in the world and the second deepest canyon in Africa, known as “The River of Joy”. Its towering cliffs rise nearly 800 m above the winding valley and it is one of the most visited natural attractions in South Africa.Bourke's Potholes is a natural sight sculpted by centuries of flowing water, and  by the confluence of the two rivers– the Treur River and the Blyde River.God’s Window: The majestic cliffs plunge down 700 m and on a clear day you will be able to see far to the famous Kruger National Park and towards the Lebombo Mountain on the South African border to Mozambique.The Berlin Falls are the most beautiful waterfalls in Mpumalanga and the highest falls in South Africa. The Sabie River drops down from a narrow gully and then spreads out on the way down to look like a flickering candle from the distance.Graskop is one of the smallest towns in Mpumalanga Province and it was set up in the 1880s as a Gold Mining camp, but now serves as a tourist destination. There are lots of restaurants to choose from for lunch; a silk weaving workshop and many souvenir shops.
