The most famous of the lowveld lookouts, God' View is the prime spot on the Panorama Route from Johannesburg to Kruger National Park. Stand silent in awe at the breath-taking scenery of the Blyde River Canyon. From this point, one can see the indigenous forests...More

God's window is include along Blyde River Canyon . It over looks the valley where Kruger National Park is located. On many days it is deep in the clouds and the view is obscured as it was partially on the day we were there.

Not sure if it’s because of the name that makes people flock to it or what, but the views further into the canyon at the Three Rondavels or just driving around far exceeds the views seen here. Here is very touristy and crowded.
