We have so many that it was difficult to choose a few when compiling a list. But here we go:
If you've never been to God's Window it is difficult to understand where this destination got its name from. However, when you are done with your short hike, and you are at one of the viewing points, you fully grasp the name of this spectacular viewpoint near Graskop.
God's Window offers you a glimpse of the Blye River Nature Reserve, or maybe a bit more than a glimpse, as it seems that the view is endless! There are various viewing points where you can take hikes to, each one with a unique perspective on the lush indigenous forest clad ravine, cliffs and waterfalls.
This is one of the spots you'll never forget seeing.
If you are up for a hike, a steep climb and a stroll through the forest, you can break away from the crowd and make your way to one of the most beautiful points at God's Window.
Although this is definitely one of the most beautiful locations, you need the Graskop weather to play along! We know that August and September are some of the best months to go to God's Window to get the most out of it. That is why we are running some specials on Graskop accommodation!

Bourke's Luck Potholes
If you are looking to be mesmerized by natural beauty, or take your kids on an adventure, Bourke's Luck Potholes is the place to go!
Bourke's Luck is one of Mpumalanga (And Graskop's) tourism gems. This unique location is set perfectly where the Treur River meets the Blyde River. These rivers have eroded the stone into swirling delights. There are large (and small) round holes formed by erosion and the water flows freely from one hole to the other.
It might not sound magnificent, but it truly is as can be seen below:
Furthermore, because this is such a huge tourist attraction, there are walkways and bridges everywhere for tourist to freely wander about and explore these natural formations.
Three Rondavels (Die Drie Rondavels)
Rondavel is a traditional circular African dwelling with a conical thatched roof.
The three rondavels are iconic to the panorama route and Graskop. They are perfectly situated along the Blyde River Canyon (Which in itself is a wonder on its own). These three mountants are named after rondavels because of the striking similarity in shape.
"The viewpoint is spectacular. From here one looks over the canyon to the Three Rondavels on the other side of the northern edges of the Drakensberg range of mountains. An outlook that is overwhelmingly beautiful and deserves more than a moment's respite." - SA Venues
