God's Window

God's Window - Drakensberg Escarpment, Mpumalanga

God's Window

God's Window, situated on the Drakensberg Escarpment is one of the more popular attractions of Mpumalanga province's Panorama Route. Known to many as Paradise country, the lush region is home to a number of magnificent natural features such as striking rock formations, beautiful waterfalls like Lone Creek, Horse Shoe and Bridal Veil, the Blyde River Canyon, spectacular endemic flora and fauna and awe inspiring views. At an altitude of almost 2,000 m above sea level, God's Window provides visitors with excellent panoramic views over the Blyde River Canyon and the Lowveld, the distant Lebombo Mountains, and the Kruger Park. It is said that on a clear day one can see parts of the Mozambique coastline, and even the boats in Maputo Harbour.

Situated along the edge of the Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve, attractions at God's Window include a rain forest and interesting Aloe gardens scattered with massive weathered sandstone outcrops. A number of scenic viewing sites along the Blyde River canyon are available to visitors, and there are also a series of well laid out hiking, horse and mountain biking trails which lead through the region. From the parking area at God's Window visitors can follow a steep footpath which leads along the edge of the escarpment to the view points at the site. It is said however, that for the best views one should hike further along a sign posted trail which meanders its way through evergreen tropical rain forest. Hikers opting for this route should take note that though the outcome is extremely rewarding, the terrain here is steep and the climate often humid, making it a walk for the more energetic. The site also features a number of curio stalls, and toilet facilities located near the parking area.
