Kruger Balloon Safari

Kruger Balloon Safari

The Ultimate Road Trip; Johannesburg to Kruger

The magnificent Kruger Panorama Route in South Africa’s Mpumalanga province is one of the continents great natural wonders and one of the world’s most beautiful driving routes. A popular add-on to Kruger safaris but also well worth exploring in its own right.

The route passes an abundance of rivers, waterfalls, natural rock formations, viewpoints with endless vistas and the famous Blyde River Canyon. Although it is possible to get a quick overview of the area in one day, we recommend you plan two or three nights en route so you can fully enjoy all the sights and attractions the Panorama Route has to offer.

The route is a 160km stretching from Long Tom Pass in the south to Echo Caves in the north. The route takes you through a visually stunning display of waterfalls, rugged mountain peaks and flourishing flora and fauna. The Panorama Route’s main highlight is the Blyde River Canyon, the third-largest canyon in the world and truly mesmerizing sight. There are multiple viewpoints along the way where you can stop to take in the surrounding vistas of the Drakensberg Escarpment down to the Lowveld.

The route is a easy drive along tarred roads with many interesting little towns along the way for a relaxing stop.
