Graskop nestles atop the Drakensberg and is surrounded by wooded slopes and bubbling streams. This is a hiker’s paradise with the Blyde Canyon Nature Reserve, God’s Window, Jacob’s View and the Fanie Botha hiking trail all on the doorstep.

Backpackers are sure to be left feeling breathless as view points and vistas come thick and fast with the Bridal Veil, Mac Mac, Lisbon and Lone Creek and Sabie Falls.

The town is an hour’s drive from the Kruger National Park and on the circular Panorama route which winds through the forests and mountains of the Drakensberg escarpment and offers budget travellers some spectacular views over the Lowveld. En route you’ll encounter the 80m Berlin Falls, the triple drop of the Lisbon Falls and God’s Window which offers a magnificent view over the Lowveld, the Pinnacle and Driekop Gorge.

Graskop makes a good stop for those preferring cooler mountain weather to the heat of the Lowveld.

Spend a few days with Hot Rod - voted the most ‘eccentric’ tour guide in Australia - at Sheri's Backpackers or revive yourself with the sweeping views and fresh mountain air at Valley View Backpackers while you spend some time in Graskop.
