Panorama Highlights Tour
It all starts with the discovery of Gold between Graskop and Pilgrims rest in the mid 1800s. The soils in the region had seemingly been blessed with a generous gold deposit as a result of the escarpment breaking away and dropping towards the east some 200 million years back. With the discovery of gold by a gentlemen named “Wheelbarrow” Patterson, this attracted fortune seekers and adventuers from far and wide looking for their own lot of a fabled eldorado in the savanna lowlands of the eastern transvaal. Their stories are wonder-filled adventures in a time that was wild and remote and which evolved around gold panning in small shanty towns laden with drink and the possibility of making your fortune.
Hidden in the deep rill sthat run of the sides of escarpment, the setting couldn’t have been more picturesque with magnificent mountain vistas, crystal clear streams and waterfalls and forrests that opened up with glorious views like Gods own window that looked out east towards the Kruger Natioal Park. Join us for an incredible journey along the Old Pilgrims Trail visiting the Graskop Gorge, Gods Window, the 3 Rondawels and of course Bourkes Luck Potholes on a route know today as the the Panormama route. Our version of the Panorama offers our guests a crafeully crafted storyboard that intriduces the history of the panorama and escrapement and blends it together with the early orgions of the lowveld savanna and in patrticulart the greater Kruger National Park. It’s an experience ethat shoudlnt be missed and offers clients and travellers a complete view and understanding of this beautiful region of South Africa.
