Graskop is the closest town to the Blyde River Canyon and Bourke’s Luck Potholes, so it’s a convenient place to stop for lunch on the Panorama Route.
Well, it is convenient but it’s more convenient if you decide to have
lunch at any time other than lunchtime, which is when the tour buses
disgorge their banana-republic-clad hordes.
It’s one of those apparently one-street towns with a whole host of restaurants and craft shops all strung out along the main thoroughfare. There are loads of pretty guesthouses in the area. Graskop is very close to Sabie and Hazyview, so you could do any of the activities in either of these two towns from Graskop, and it’s conveniently close to the Kruger National Park.
