A must see view.

Doubtless the view is amazing and probably even better on a less hazy day. But for me it is not as spectacular as the Three Roundavels or Bourkes Luck Potholes. I'd would also... read more

Doubtless the view is amazing and probably even better on a less hazy day. But for me it is not as spectacular as the Three Roundavels or Bourkes Luck Potholes. I'd would also strongly recommend continuing up the path to the rain forest and to explore the plateau at the top. Some great views and different flora and fauna.

This is a famous tourist site and it has been reviewed on umpteen occasions. Suffice to say, it does afford one a lovely view down to the lowveld and there is another lovely view if one takes the paved pathway up to another viewing point.

An amazing view over the Blyde River Canyon. It is better to go there on the clear day, so you can see Kruger Park and Lebombo mountains.

When you stand on the edge and look out upon the miles and miles of trees and other wildlife you understand why the call it God's window... I will never forget the beauty of this place. Even if it's raining or overcast you can still experience the vast expanse and beauty of this place.

Also on the R538, just down from Wonderview. You will feel like you are high up in the clouds, as you look out across the beautiful rolling green hills below you in the Low Veld. The area is currently being upgraded, so expected a little noise from the equipment being used. Best to visit on a lovely sunny day, if... More

This is an amazing place to see but there is too many vendors outside, its supposed to be an outdoor activity but the vendors take advantage of the tourists.

Beautiful views and nature. Difficult to predict the quality of the views with the mist and clouds. Facilities need upgrading.

I so love to return here, to look down from the highveld into the B.R. and watch black eagles making lazy circles on the thermals up into the air. However you picture my homeland I can guarantee you Europeans won't be ready for this. It truly is a glimpse of heaven, beauty unbounded. Last month I sat, as I have... More
