God’s Window, Mpumalanga
Imagine looking down a 700m plunge, beholding some of the most beautiful natural scenery that South Africa has to offer.
God’s Window is situated in the midst of the Lowveld’s natural wonderland – within the Blyde River Canyon Nature Reserve. God’s Window is so-called for the breath-taking panoramic views offered of the Lowveld. Views that are comparable to none. Views that speak to your inner happiness and soothe the soul – we all need a bit of time spent in nature every now and then.
High up in the canyon, listen to the sounds of water trickling through the cliffs, the wind whispering softly and the cheerful songs of sunbirds and other happy inhabitants.
Notice the changing fragrances in the air, as you move along the different routes, and explore aloe flowers and many types of vegetation.
Once you’ve made your way to the top. Take a moment to truly take in the view.
The rainforest. The gorges and escarpment. The absolute beauty of nature. Being surrounded by, enveloped in, and finding joy in the wonder of this beautiful place.
The God’s Window experience is sure to leave you in awe, inspired and renewed.
