The Panorama Route in Mpumalanga is an incredibly beautiful stretch of South Africa and it is getting the praise it deserves.


Panorama Route, South Africa (05 March 2020) – Often South Africa is only seen for its wildlife and Table Mountain, and other natural beauties are forgotten but not today!

“Densely wooded forests and breathtaking canyons are just a couple of sights you’ll encounter on South Africa’s Panorama Route. This awe-inspiring route links many of the countries cultural points and natural wonders. Be sure to stop off to admire the world’s third-largest canyon – Blyde River Canyon.”
