I have been before, so I know the views aren't as spectacular as Blyde River Canyon and Three Rondavels view points. But I was disappointed by the way it is managed. They have started charging R15 entrance since I last visited... the gaurds were rude,...More

Visited with my wife and daughter. Amazing view into the valley below ! Didnt have time to walk through the "rain forrest" though ! When and if you visit, do the whole Mpumalanga scenery route though !! Amazing part of our country !! Beautifull !

God's window is quite a site, the views are just stunning. Fresh air and break taking views! Its definitely worth the visit. Entrance is R30 per adult. Mpumalanga gets rainy in the summer so time your visit well for the best views.

Highly recommended, the fog can limit ones views,however, one can appreciate the beauty of each viewing deck and the walk way through to the forest. The walk is definitely worth it at the end.

The view at God’s Window was cool, but Kaapschehoop was better! God’s Window is a must see if you are on the Panoramic Route, but just be prepared for a lot of stairs and a lot of people. Unfortunately, on the day we went to...More

From a high point this a wonderful place for views. The climb is a bit of a steep, and longish, so wearing comfortable shoes is a must. A bottle of water too, as this place gets very hot during the day especially in summer. It...More

Spectacular views that live up to the name. Situated close to Graskop. You have to navigate a steep footpath that takes you to a high viewpoint right on the edge of the escarpment. From there you have a beautiful view of the Lowveld. I've taken...More

Went in the afternoon. Place was busy but not too bad. Worth the little climb because the views are breath-taking. With 3 viewing points, you're guaranteed to get amazing pictures, because the truth is, if there are no pics it never happened.

Usually they charge per vehicle only, but during the December holidays they charged us per person - R20pp. This seemed to be the practice at most of the places we visited.

It never really closes. It's just a place. The open air stores probably close when there's no tourists around but you can come and go as you please when they're closed
