Wonderful stop, plenty of small vendors, marked paved trail and restrooms. This should be considered a must stop.

Amazing views of this valley, & the mists at certain times of the day give it a surreal feel. Many rocky outcrops for that special "top of the world" photo. Highly recommended.

This viewpoint has great view of both the three roundavels and the Canyon. Another forgotten tourist attraction in the hands of government.

The Roundavels are part of the Blyde River Canyon, you will be able to appreciated them when you drive around. It's better to get a tour to see the area better -this was our experience. Stunning!!

This is definitely the best viewpoint of the four viewpoints on the Panorama Route. This portion of the canyon reminds me of the Grand Canyon in Arizona. The canyon walls are filled with color and interesting shapes. Pinnacle Rock is the 2nd best view point...More

The view from the Three Rondavels is breathtaking. You can sit there for a long time gazing out at the Rondavels, the Blyde River, and much more. The children found it very interesting to see too.

this is a must visit site in the region. you will need a very good camera and selfie stick. the local area is also stunning and if you really have time prepare for one of the hiking trails to become one with the nature.

The Three Rondavels view point is absolutely amazing. The views of the mountain peaks, with the river raging in the valley below, are stunning. A must visit. One of the highlights on the Panarame Tour.
