Skip to content This is undoubtedly the most spectacular self-drive route in South Africa. You will discover majestic waterfalls, breathtaking views, the historical town of Pilgrim’s Rest, Graskop Gorge, God’s Window, Bourke’s Luck Potholes, etc. The Lowveld's close proximity to the Drakensberg escarpment makes for an abundance of mountain passes to explore. This self-drive route is a 38 km exploration of ancient rock formations which date from the Achaean period, more than three billion years ago. These are no ordinary rocks. The discovery on the mountains behind Barberton has become known as 'the history of our planet cast in stone'.
