JNB – Panorama Route – Kruger – JNB
Driving along the Capricorn Trail in the Kruger,a small herd of elephants travelling in the opposite direction.

On longer Johannesburg holidays, the 6-7 hour Panorama Route from the city is well worth the drive. On the Drakensberg escarpment in Mpumalanga, the aptly-named God’s Window is a vision of scenic splendour. See the awe-inspiring Blyde River Canyon and the dramatic trio of dolomite domes known as the Three Rondavels. Then journey a further 90 minutes to Kruger National Park, and look out for the ‘Big 5’ animals on an exhilarating safari adventure in this spectacular game reserve.
