Just next to the Highlands Meander is The Panorama, which abounds with breathtaking views from natural wonders along the eastern slopes of the escarpment. There is God s Window and the world s third largest canyon and biggest green canyon, the Blyde River Canyon. There are also the astonishing Bourke s Luck Potholes and three rondawels. The towns of Lydenburg and White River are gateways to the route, which takes visitors through the quaint towns of Pilgrim s Rest, a living museum dating back to the hey days of the gold rush, as well as Sabie, Graskop, Ohrigstad and Hazyview. Nature enthusiasts will discover cascading water falls while adrenaline junkies can get their next rush by bungee jumping, white water rafting or going on rigorous 4×4 trails.

The Highlands Meander way.
Mpumalanga s Highlands Meander is a nature lover s paradise, boasting South Africa s premier fly-fishing Mecca, some of the sub-continent s rarest birds, best rock climbing, and most spectacular wild flower displays — all just two-hours drive from the metropolitan centres of Gauteng and Mozambique.
It is also home to Africa s only breeding community of wild Black Leopard, who haunt the wild mountain ravines and streams that characterise the Highland Meander. The region s diversity and string of quaint historic towns have made it a popular weekend hideaway for well-heeled city slickers, who flock to hamlets such as Dullstroom for South Africa s best trout and fly fishing. The town s stone lodges nestle along cool trout dams and streams, where bright yellow arum lilies and 120 other species of indigenous wild flower carpet the region in a kaleidoscope of colour every spring.
