Panorama route from Hoedspruit.

We are busy planning our long weekend, yes our trips only materialise when they are planned this late.

We are from Johannesburg, leaving Saturday morning. Coming back Monday afternoon. Times dont matter that much.We are planning to visit Hoedspruit n the Panorama route.

We dont mind sleeping in 2 different towns.

Kindly advice on the towns we can consider for sleeping in order for us to have just overnight stay and continue with our road trip in the morning.

Thank you

If you have two nights, I would overnight at Graskop and in Hoedspruit. What do you plan to do and see in Hoedspruit? Or are you visiting family there? I love the town of Hoedspruit but it is not much of a destination by itself, it is more often used as a gateway for a safari. But there are some attractions in the area, like Moholoholo and the Blyde Dam for example.

Graskop is in the heart of the Panorama Route and there are plenty of accommodation options, and lots to see and do in the area. You might even want to consider staying both nights in Graskop.

If you leave Saturday morning, you can get to Graskop by lunch time and spend the afternoon exploring the Graskop Gorge, and/or the surrounding view points and waterfalls close to Graskop. The next morning, head north past the Pinnacle and God's Window, then take in Bourke's Luck potholes and the Three Rondavels view points.

Joburg to Graskop is 4 hours, and Graskop to Hoedspruit via the Pano route is also at least 3-5 hours, depending on how long you stop along the way. Hoedspruit back to Joburg is 6 hours, unless you drive via the Pano route again and stop along the way.

Drive safely and beware of potholes!

Thank you.

We thought there might be something interesting to see in Hoedspruit. Considering that we might have 3 days full( we can leave Johanneaburg at 5am) and come back home Monday 8pm latest

We would prefer to see or visit other places than just the Panorama route
