Travelling by car from Johannesburg to the south of the Kruger National Park takes about five or six hours and there is a lot to see along the way. But to really get the most out of your trip, you should consider staying a night or two along the way.

The road runs through the rocky northern Drakensberg Mountains in Mpumalanga and passes the north-eastern part of the Highveld, the inland plateau where Johannesburg is located. This plateau descends very steeply and abruptly downhill and offers, especially in winter, great views of the Lowveld below.

The most spectacular part of the Panorama Route is the Blyde River Canyon, the third largest canyon in the world, where the cliffs rise hundreds of meters above the river bed. From many vantage points you can see the huge canyon that begins and ends at the amazing rock formations of Bourke's Luck Potholes and the Three Rondavels.

There's also the dramatic lookout spots Wonder View and God's Window, the ancient caves of Echo Caves, the stately rock The Pinnacle and numerous waterfalls, just to name a few of the natural wonders of the area.

Panorama Route also takes you to the old charming gold digging towns, such as Pilgrim's Rest, Sabie, Graskop and Hazyview.

Unless you only want to enjoy the beautiful scenery, you can fly hot air balloon, hike and pan for gold, or if you are looking for activities that give you an adrenaline kick, there is bungee jumping, white water rafting or special trails for quad bikes.
