Just next to the Highlands Meander is The Panorama, which abounds with breathtaking views from natural wonders along the eastern slopes of the escarpment. There is God’s Window and the world’s third largest canyon and biggest green canyon, the Blyde River Canyon. There are also the astonishing Bourke’s Luck Potholes and three rondawels. The towns of Lydenburg and White River are gateways to the route, which takes visitors through the quaint towns of Pilgrim’s Rest, a living museum dating back to the hey days of the gold rush, as well as Sabie, Graskop, Ohrigstad and Hazyview. Nature enthusiasts will discover cascading water falls and the Gorge Company lift, 51 m descent into the Gorge in Graskop, while adrenaline junkies can get their next rush by bungee jumping, white water rafting or going on rigorous 4×4 trails. More gentler pursuits include hot air ballooning, walking trails and gold panning.
