South Africa is a country with a good network of roads,
and plenty of places and attractions that are well worth seeing and experiencing.
In this edition we continue to highlight a few of the best road trips that every South African and visitor to our country should aim to experience.
Panorama Route, Mpumalanga If you are looking for a little bit of everything on a road trip, you need look no further than the Panorama Route in Mpumalanga.
Travellers are guaranteed to experience history, beautiful landscapes, wildlife, adventure activities and even some romance as an added bonus.
The route runs from the Kruger National Park area in the north to Nelspruit/Mbombela in the south, Road trip
covering almost 300 kilometres and taking at least one day (preferably longer).
A visit to Kruger National Park (the largest game reserve in South Africa)
means that travellers are almost guaranteed to start off the trip
by seeing some large and fi erce animals. First on the itinerary are the scenic spots of Blyde River Canyon, God’s Window and Bourke’s Luck Potholes.
The Blyde River Canyon is the world’s third largest canyon after the Grand Canyon in the USA and the Fish River Canyon in Namibia,
and offers great views of the Three Rondavels (three distinctive peaks towering above the surrounding countryside).
The next stop on the route is an historic one. The small and scenic town of Pilgrim’s Rest appears to have been caught in a time warp from the 1800s.
Originally a mining town during the days of the gold rush, visitors can take a step back in time to see what life must have been like in those days.
The Royal Hotel has been magnificently preserved and is one of the main attractions, while the Digging’s Site a short distance away recreates the gold rush and allows visitors to look for some of their own gold.
