Owner description: The Graskop Gorge lift Company (Pty) Ltd is the latest and most innovative tourism development in South Africa. Situated in Graskop Mpumalanga, along the Panorama Route, made famous for its natural beauty and world renowned viewing attractions such as God’s Window and the Blyde River Canyon. The Graskop Gorge Lift Company is your passage into the heart of one of Mpumalanga’s last forested wonderlands. Surrounded by towering cliffs cut back over time by the Motitsi river where its waters plummet 70m into the gorge below forming a natural barrier to all, except for the most adventurous. Your journey begins as you drop off the grassy cliff top plateau, in a custom designed 26 passenger viewing elevator, down along the cliff face descending into the cool mountain forest below. An extensive network of elevated walkways, suspension bridges and interactive exhibits will lead you along the forest trail, across the stream, keeping one engaged in this natural and pristine environment.

Well-organised, not expensive close encounter with nature. Everything in good working order and well maintained, not what one often finds in South Africa. A very interesting short trip at the bottom of the gorge, with beautiful information placards. The whole route is wheelchir-friendly. A great idea and well executed. Well done!


Nice curios and art shops. Super restaurant

Beautiful and a must visit.
Only negative experience, when we arrived it was raining and the gates were open and we didn’t see the fee for parking/entrance. Went in to shops and restaurant and then to buy tickets for lift. When we left, we were stopped by security for tickets. We explained that we didn’t get any tickets and it was raining. Security were very rude and we phoned management. The manager were also rude and we only wanted to explain the situation. Be on the oulook to pay for entrance. Not a nice experience when you absolutely honest.

The Graskop Gorge Lift was an unexpected world-class tourist attraction. Nice to visit a venue that shows off the natural beauty of the region. Loads of informative displays. Fantastic view points and beautiful sounds of nature with even the odd scream from us humans swinging off the bridge.

This was an unexpected gem. Staying close by, we were really impressed by the quality of the whole experience. The information graphics along the boardwalk of the bottom of the Gorge are world class. The views are magnificent and we would highly recommend this to anyone travelling in the area.
