4. From Hazyview: Full-Day Panorama Route & Gorge Lift Tour
Trek along the Panorama Route, and admire the beautiful scenery along the route, like views of the Blyde River Canyon and the Lowveld. See God's Window, Wonderview, and the Three Rondawels. Try out the Gorge Lift, and travel down a cliff face into the mountain forest below.
Be picked up from your accommodation in Hazyview and set out for the Panorama Route. Begin the tour as it climbs toward the town of Graskop, the southernmost point of the Blyde River Canyon. Travel along the edge of the escarpment, and stop at different lookout points.
See magnificent views from various points on the road, like God's Window, the Three Rondawels, and Wonderview. Visit the famous Bourke's Luck Potholes, deep cylindrical cavities formed by thousands of years of water erosion from the Blyde and Treur Rivers.
Arrive in Graskop and experience the exhilarating Gorge Lift where you travel over 50 m down the cliff face into the cool mountain forest below the cliffs. Explore an extensive network of elevated walkways, suspension bridges, and interactive exhibits through 500 m of forest trails and across streams.
Stop to buy lunch at a local restaurant along the way and if time permits, spend some more time browsing in local shops or wandering the streets. Admire wares from local vendors along the way, from nuts and fruits to beaded necklaces and carved wooden animals.
Visit the Berlin and Lisbon Falls South of Graskop where the Sabie River rises, and marvel at the numerous waterfalls tumbling down the mountain. Finish the tour here before returning to accommodations in Hazyview.
