The Panorama Route is one of the most beautiful and popular travel destinations in South Africa. It leads through the rugged mountain range of the northern Drakensberg. Here, in the north-eastern part of the Great Escarpment, the inland plateau declines abruptly and steeply and opens up fantastic views of the plains of the Lowveld a thousand meters below. Enjoy the most spectacular stretch - the Blyde River Canyon, third largest Canyon in the world. The Canyon starts at "Bourke's Luck Potholes", through "God's Window", from where you will enjoy a wonderful view on the Lowveld and ends at the "Three Rondavels".

Kruger National Park, on the other hand, offers the perfect opportunity for visitors to experience the excitement and adventure that Africa has to offer. Rated among the greatest and largest wildlife sanctuaries in the world, the park is a vast stretch of land over 400 km from north to south and average 80 km from east to west. From its arid north to its luxuriant, more vegetative south, experiencing the natural beauty of the Park is a constant marvel. Its animals, trees, vegetation, birdlife and the night sounds of the wild give you the ultimate wild experience. The Park is home to more than 500 bird species and 147 mammals including the famous “Big 5”. It is also home to more than 12,000 Elephant, 2,000 Lion and 130,000 Impala Antelope, among plenty other game.
