Area Information:
The natural wonders of Graskop are probably the most photographed and painted scenes in the world. Situated in the magnificent Mpumalanga Province, Graskop is ideally located in the heart of the tourism region and is the gateway to the Panorama Route.

Graskop is a small town found on the edge of the Drakensberg escarpment and the ideal base from which to explore all the sight-seeing venues in Mpumalanga including the Kruger National Park, Pilgrims Rest, Blyde River Canyon and so much more.

Graskop is a bustling tourism destination. With the ever growing amount of activities, Graskop will keep you busy from day to day. Of course, the spectacular scenery complements the many activities available. Graskop is also only a few minutes away from the scenic wonders of the Province including God's Window, Bourke's Luck Potholes and the world renowned Blyde River Canyon, Three Rondawels and the impressive waterfalls such as Lisbon and Mac Mac Falls.

God's Window boasts truly dramatic views to the South and East from various placed viewpoints, overlooking the almost sheer 300m drop into indigenous forest clad ravine. Being 250m higher than the pinnacle viewpoint, the total drop to the lands below is approximately 750m. The Blyde River Canyon is the third largest in the world and one of South Africa's popular scenic wonders. The scenery of the 25 000 ha reserve is truly unsurpassed by any other. Its vegetation is both varied and lush and the rich selection of birdlife includes a breeding colony of the rare bald ibis.

The first modern records relating to the town of Graskop date back to 1843, with the arrival of the Voortrekkers in the area. They were searching for a route to the coast, to what is known today as Maputo in Mozambique.

The farm Graskop was so named because of the vast tracts of grassveld and absence of trees in the area. In the 1850s it was owned by Abel Erasmus, a rather adventurous character in hunting, prospecting and imposing law and order in the area. He left his name on a pass over the Escarpment. Today Graskop is the terminus of the branch railway from Nelspruit and a centre of a large timber industry. Graskop is also famous for the story ‘Jock of the Bushveld’ which dates back to between 1885 and 1887. Paradise Camp is where Sir Percy Fitzpatrick established his camp. Two chapters in his book are set in this area.

Graskop boasts a vast array of exciting activities including fantastic golf courses, hiking trails, 4x4 trails, horse riding, quad bikes, motorbike tours and much more! Besides its magnificent beauty, Graskop is also well known for its delicious pancake bars and delightful coffee shops! Graskop is one not to be missed. It is truly a spectacular experience boasting rich historical heritage and pristine beauty.
