Things to see and do

Kruger National Park

The Kruger National Park is one of the oldest, biggest and best game reserves in the world. While the "Big 5" - lion, elephant, leopard, rhino and buffalo, are the biggest attractions, there are 114 species of reptiles, 507 species of birds and at least 140 other mammals to be seen.

Panorama Route

The Panorama Route begins in Graskop, heads off to the Lisbon and Berlin waterfalls and continues to God's Window that has viewpoints that teeter on the edge of the wilderness. Bourke's Luck Potholes are erosion features caused by the swirling river. The route veers to the Blyde River Canyon before returning to Graskop.
