It’s highly likely that anyone visiting Graskop will have stopped for a treat at one of the many superb pancake houses in the town. Tour buses parked outside a particular establishment hints at its popularity.
But Graskop is much more than this – the town is known as the Window on Mpumalanga, chiefly because of its location at the edge of the escarpment where pine plantations make way for awe-inspiring views of thick indigenous bushveld set amongst canyons and hills.
The area was first established as a mining settlement in 1882. Present day Graskop is a tourist destination with some of South Africa’s most spectacular natural wonders bordering the town. Graskop is included in the popular Panorama Route that runs from Lydenburg in the south to north of the Blyde River Canyon. This route is bursting with panoramas, waterfalls, fruit and nut farms, striking mountains and appealing towns, one of the principal ones being Graskop.
