God's Window offers one of the most spectacular views on the African continent.
Safaris and tours in South Africa’s Mpumalanga province prove incomplete without a trip to one of the country’s most popular vantage points: God’s Window. Roosting 700m above the seemingly endless sprawl of pine tree plantations, the ‘window’ gives visitors the impression of being on top of the world.
One of the absolute highlights when exploring the Panorama Route, the view from God’s Window has the innate ability to snatch your breath away. After a scenic climb to the top, visitors are spoilt with a view that sprawls across hundreds of kilometers. On a clear day, one can spy the Lebombo Mountains on the border of South Africa’s Kruger National Park and Mozambique.
However, even when the dense veil of escarpment mist rolls in, the scene is quite magical. The cliff drops 700m down to the Lowveld, and when the breeze gnaws a hole in the mist, the height will have you reeling. The original ‘Window’, a rock with an opening in the middle, is unfortunately not accessible to the public, but visitors will find that it is only necessary to stand on the edge to enjoy the view.
