There’s just not enough time in a day to cover all the nostalgic beauty that the Panorama Tour has to offer. Too much to see and too much to experience in this corner of the world, but you cannot miss out on the unique landscape carved out by this enchanting escarpment. The Blyde Canyon is said to be the largest green canyon in the world.

The highlights on this tour include, Kowyn’s Pass, Graskop, the Pinnacle, God’s Window or Wonder View (weather permitting, of course), Berlin or Lisbon Waterfalls, Mac-Mac Falls and return via the centre of the forestry industry - Sabie. A lunch stop (not included) can be made en route. A drive through Pilgrim’s Rest, the historical gold mining town, can be included when driving through Sabie.
