One of the highlights of a trip to South Africa is, without a doubt, the panorama Route. The Panorama Route is a South African car route with an abundance of scenic landscapes and nature. The route commences in a spot called Sabie and ends at the Erasmuspass, also known as Lowveld. The route portrays the diversity of landscapes that characterise South Africa. From the bush to the extraordinary vistas and impressive mountain ranges.
The Panorama Route guides you through multiple attractions such as the Blyde River Canyon, God’s Window, The Three Rondavels, The Pinnacle, Bourke’s Luck Potholes and Pilgrim’s Rest. Next to that, you’ll also encounter pleasant towns like Graskop. Don’t forget to take a stop in Graskop for Harrie’s Pancakes, where they serve the most delicious pancakes. Pilgrim’s Rest is located nearby Graskop: an old gold mining town. Immerse yourself in the historic location of Pilgrim’s Rest, where gold used to be mined in abundance.
The highlight of the route is the Blyde River Canyon: one of the longest chasms in the world, consisting of spectacular geological shapes and the most stunning scenic views of the country.
If you’ve booked a vacation rental at Homes of Africa, the option to directly go on the Panorama Route on your way from Johannesburg to the holiday rentals exists. If it’s not possible for you to take the route at this time, it can also easily be taken at a point later in time, as a daytrip: the point of departure of the Panorama Route is only a 30 minute drive away from the holiday homes. You’ll find further information about the Panorama Route, such as its starting point and public attractions, enclosed within the information folder that you’ll receive after you’ve made a booking. One famous traveler described the Panorama Route in an entertaining way.
