At a Glance
From Hazyview, the tour begins as it climbs towards the town of Graskop and the southernmost point of the Blyde River Canyon. The Panorama Tour encompasses some spectacular scenery, with breathtaking views of the Blyde River Canyon and out over the endless Lowveld beyond. We take guests along the edge of the escarpment, to look out points that offer magnificent views, including God’s Window, Wonderview and the Three Rondawels.
Along the route we visit the famous Bourkes Luck Potholes – deep cylindrical cavities formed by thousands of years of water erosion at the confluence of the Blyde and Treur Rivers. Pilgrim’s Rest is well worth a visit. This old mining town was established during the heady days of the gold rush in the late 1800′s and the whole town is now lovingly preserved as a national monument.
At lunch time the tour will stop back in Graskop so that guests can have lunch at a restaurant and if time permits, can spend a while browsing in local shops or along the pavements. Street vendors sell an amazing variety of goods – from nuts and fruit to beaded necklaces and carved wooden animals. Near Graskop, where numerous waterfalls tumble down the mountains, we will visit the beautiful Berlin Falls and Lisbon Falls on the way back to Hazyview.
