As one of the geographically oldest areas in the country, the Panorama Tour route has become a popular tourist attraction for those who visit the area.

The Kurt Safari Panorama Tour in Mpumalanga is designed to allow guests to see the most popular attractions within a single day. The tour group will depart at 8 am and head off into Africa’s biggest pine and eucalyptus forest.
God’s Window lies up ahead and from this lookout point, guests will be able to look down 1000m from the escapement into the Lowveld. After spending some time there, the tour departs for the famous waterfalls in the area and Bourke’s Luck Potholes, a stunning natural formation in the ancient rocks.
Next on the list is the famous Blyde River Canyon. With an impressive 40km of length and a 1200m depth, this is the world’s third largest canyon. When walking up to the end of this canyon it is difficult to think that such a massive canyon is but meters away, as the landscape can be deceiving; once at the top of the canyon, looking down into the vast plant life, river and dams that make up the floor of the canyon, you are sure to find a new appreciation for the beauty that nature delights us with.
From one of the most popular lookout points, you will get to see another gem on the Panorama Tour and that is the Three Rondavels. They are called the Three Rondavels because of their Rondavel-like shape, these three rocky structures are an unusual and uncommon sight.
The tour will stop in Graskop for lunch. This sleepy town can cater for all types of tourists by offering a unique shopping experience and thanks to the size of the town, guests are able to easily navigate the town on foot.
