The Escarpment, drops over approximately 700 meters to the Lowveld beneath resulting in a series of imposing cliffs, best observed from the God’s Window view point.
The splendid panoramas, rock shapes, canyons and waterfalls make for an excellent sightseeing route. Natural attractions comprise the awesome Blyde River Canyon with its multitude of curious rock formations, particularly Bourke’s Luck Potholes which have been fashioned by churning waters, rocks and gravel to form immense holes. The canyon forms part of the Blydepoort reserve, inhabited by a wealth of small animals and a birdlife. The area is ideal for activities such as hiking, horse and mountain bike riding.
You can also visit some magnificent waterfalls which drop down the escarpment, such as Bridal Veil, Berlin, Mac Mac Falls which are well worth a break in your journey.
In close proximity lies the gold-rush settlement of Pilgrim’s Rest. The whole village has been preserved as a historical testament to the wild rough and ready era of the past.
