Unfortunately we were unable to visit God’s Window during our Panorama Route Tour due to weather conditions. It was very cloudy and our guide Benji advises not to try.

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.
