As the Northern Drakensberg Mountains are
right next door to Kruger National Park & Sabi Sand Reserve, we
include driving along South Africa's 'Panoramic Route' either on
your first day or on the last day of your safari.
These mountains are perhaps
the most spectacular of all the scenic wonders of Africa. The
highlight is the Blyde River Canyon (world's 3rd biggest canyon)
which towers above the canyon floor in sheer vertical
cliffs of orange ochre soaring to 700 meters above the Blyde River.
Beneath the cliffs the mountains appear to be swathed in bolts
of luscious green cloth cascading into the dark blue waters of
the gorge below.
En-route depending on time,
you will spend a few minutes
at spots such as; God's Window, Worlds View, Berlin Falls, Blyde River Canyon, the Three Rondavels
and if there is sufficient time, visit Pilgrims Rest; which is an old gold mining town
and is now a national monument!
At each of the scenic stops
you have the opportunity to finish off your film and to barter
for locally crafted curios.
Should the Panoramic Route be
carried out on the last day, we'll still make sure you are dropped-off at
your hotel in Jo'burg or at Jo'burg's Oliver Tambo Int Airport,
for approx 6.00pm.
Unfortunately we are unable to include the Panoramic Route
if you are flying-in or out from KMIA, MQP or HDS.
