The Panorama Route, southwards


Recommended Posts

Coming from FADS Hoedspruit we climb over Moholoholo Animal Rehab center https://www.moholoholo.co.za/ ...


... up to the northern Drakensbergs...


... just behind the Three Rondavels. No, Martyn, this is not a Circus artist group, it means 3 hills looking like the local traditional round houses.


You can imagine this if you watch the scenery from Lowveld Lookout.


Next to the creek down there are the Bourke´s Luck Potholes, unfortunately not to be seen in the sim.


And the Lisbon River should begin at the falls of the same name.


Graskop is a village with hotels, bars and restaurants (and tourist attractions) at the southern end of the Panorama Route.


Finally we leave the mountains...


... fly across Hazyview, ...


... until we spot FAKN Kruger Mpumalanga airport on a plateau (left). The place to rest for this night.

I am sure it is on your "Bucket List" . :):D

You are totally correct, John. But the longer Corona stays, the longer this list grows. The only cure is simmed travelling, and it really helps a bit. Can we charge it to the health insureances?

Enjoyed the flight and the shots, I am learning a lot about Africa. (I take the names of the places your at and look them and read about them.)

Thanks a lot, John! Reading about these places brings you on a long, interesting Journey, I hope you are undisturbed!

I just found this place to be a good starting point: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blyde_River_Canyon_Nature_Reserve#The_Three_Rondavels 

Or you take this one: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panorama_Route

Very nice indeed - out with the atlas again for me :D

As said before, I have the atlas just next to my sim desk. But in this case I knew the route by heart, as it is travel preparation, awaiting those days when travel would be possible again. And hopefully affordable.

Gosh Gerold, you make it look easy.  I have this OLC but haven't explored even .00000001% of it!

That means you can easily increase your "explorance rate" by potencies! You lucky guy... ;)!
