Overnight? Stay in Graskop, in Mpumalanga

Along the scenic Panorama Route, in the South African province of Mpumalanga, are speckled a number of attractions that are not only naturally beautiful, but also geologically, historically and culturally relevant. These include Bourke’s Luck Potholes, God’s Window, the Three Rondawels and Wonder View, as well as the intriguing Pinnacle Rock. All of these add so much to the tourism offering, demonstrating how varied and abundant South Africa is.

The Pinnacle Rock is a massive quartzite rock that erupts from the earth’s surface and reaches some 30 metres in height. It is a freestanding rock that towers over the dense indigenous forest of Driekop Gorge in a dramatic display of nature’s quirks and the unique splendour of South Africa. It is littered with stunning, brightly-coloured aloes that not only add to the appeal amongst the local birds and insect species, but also make for extra beautiful photographs of the rock and its surrounds.

There are public ablutions available here, as well as vendors sitting at this attraction selling African curious and keepsakes. These stalls are a delight to visitors and locals alike and the vendors are friendly and helpful. From here, you may carry on to the town of Graskop, which is a mere five kilometres away, or God’s Window, which is less than six kilometres from the rock. Graskop is a little forestry town on the very edge of the Drakensberg escarpment, offering breath-taking vistas and a very special experience of this country. There are also a number of stunning waterfalls along the Panorama Route and nearby to the Pinnacle Rock.

A nominal entrance fee is charged to see the rock and its breath-taking setting.
