God’s Window is a famous natural landmark found along the Panorama Route in Mpumalanga. God’s Window is situated within the Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve, and offers a magnificent viewpoint over the greenest canyon in the world. Here, the cliffs drop away to an astonishing 700 - 900m gorge filled with trees, shrubs, and wildlife.
God's Window offers spectacular views across the lowveld. On a clear day, you'll be able to see across the famous Kruger National Park towards the Lebombo Mountains in the distance. Forming part of a 250km long series of cliffs, God's Window is absolutely captivating in its beauty. Please note that the view site at God's Window is only worth viewing on a sunny, clear day as cloud cover can hide the scenery.
A steep stepped footpath leads to the viewpoints along the edge of the escarpment. There are three viewing sites and picnic areas along the way. A boardwalk leads through a peaceful rainforest with moss covered trees, little streams, and boulders of all shapes and sizes all the way to the top, and most enchanting, viewpoint. Pack a picnic to enjoy on the rocks at the top. There are curio stalls and toilet facilities at the parking area.
The towns of Lydenberg and White River all provide gateways to the Panorama Route. Other quaint towns in the area include Sabie, Graskop, Orighstand, Hoedspruit and Hazyview. Along with God’s Window, other well-known spots on the route include Bourke’s Luck Potholes, the Three Rondavels, the Mac Mac Falls and the Blyde River Canyon.
