About
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.

    Most beautiful place ever
    I just love this stunning stunning forest after you went down with the list. I just feel like getting lost in this jungle and staying there ever and ever. A very small coffee shop with just coffee and a cool drink will be nice at the bottom

    Family Outing in Graskop
    This was worth it and the time taken to travel to Graskop. I loved the nature around us and the walkways at the bottom through the forests. It was a lovely family experience and activity to do together. Beautiful photo opportunities are everywhere. So beautiful.

    Graskop lift
    The Graskop lift and boardwalk experience was mind blowing. The information boards were very informative and the boardwalk safe. The variety of plants, trees and birds was great adding to the experience of being in a gorge. The gorge swing and zip lining were very professionally run. There was great places to eat, drink a drink shop. A very worthwhile visit.

    Definitely worth a visit
    Nicely set out with great viewing areas. We did the glass lift with the walk around at the bottom and that was a very pleasant way to spend 30 mins. They have some comfy chairs by the suspension bridge where you can enjoy a drink and watch people flinging themselves off the swing platform! Toilets are immaculate - as is the whole area Easy to find and plenty of parking

    Breath taking Graskop gorge lift company
    What a beautiful experience I had visiting this gorge for the first time. We'll maintained, well organised and pristine premises. Worth a visit and breath taking views. The big swing is exhilarating and heart in your mouth experience. The zipling was great and so popular with even school kids. The lift ride down was breathing mtatititsi falls in background 600m into the gorge. Walkings we'll maintained, labelled and forest walks, swing bridges, long walkways into the forest right down into the gorge was a once in a lifetime experience I must if you are surrounding areas of Hazyview

    One fantastic afternoon
    This was an absolutely incredible experience. We took the lift down into the rain forest, this was amazing. My three boys did the zip line and loved that experience. We all enjoyed a very well prepared lunch at the lift cafe - prices are reasonable. The fish and chips is fantastic. Certainly worth a visit!

    God's beauty, blown away with the forest ,Waterfall and action activities and sites
    Blown away , from the entrance to leaving. Beautiful scenery , exploring the forest , well sign posted. The breathtaking waterfall. The zip lining over the gorge. Not enough words to explain but to see it for yourself. Go on a clear day to see the views as you go down a glass lift. Very clean and well looked after with great staff to help you. Well worth a visit

Arrived early and took one of the first lifts down. We were the only couple in the gorge. Reaching the bottom there was an employee using a leaf blower. I asked if he could switch it off as it was ruining the tranquility. He said he could not as it was his job. I asked why it was not done before visitors arrive, said the lift was broken and he started late. totally ruined our experience

Excellent venue, good views well suited to a family day out plus activities for adrenaline junkies.
Offers 2 restaurants, a shop and a small market area( from the pricing , I'd assume is aimed at international tourists.

2nd time to this beautiful location and facility.
Pity about the loud, thumping music heard down in the gorge from the restaurant up above. Supposed to be quiet, peaceful an serene down there but tarnished by the music.
Pity that seemingly inebriated patrons doing the jump, walk around with alcohol in their hands, drinking and shouting needlessly.
Pity there no staff to monitor patrons down in the gorge as we encountered patrons smoking, shouting, screaming when there are signs all over the place requesting that patrons don't do so.
