Graskop Gorge Lift Co
Graskop Gorge Lift Co is centrally located on the Panorama Route, in Mpumalanga. While it is an ideal stopover point en route to the Kruger National Park, it is also an end destination in its own right, with lots to do on-site and in the area.
There’s something for the entire family to enjoy at Graskop Gorge Lift Co, from the viewing lift – which takes visitors 51m down the face of the Graskop gorge into the indigenous forest below, where wooden walkways and suspension bridges make up a 600m trail – to the Big Swing, one of the world’s highest cable gorge swings that launches off the top of a waterfall.
Visitors to the centre who still want to get their hearts racing but who think the Big Swing is too extreme for them can choose to fly across the gorge on a high-wire zipline. The course starts from the top of a 5m tower, with 360° views. Participants ride a 120m-long zipline to the northern side of the gorge before walking a short distance along a scenic platform and zipping back along a second zipline of equal length.
Our spectacular 52m-long suspension bridge, which spans the northern and southern sides of the Graskop Gorge, enables visitors to enjoy spectacular views while standing 70m above the ground.
There are two restaurants on-site, the Life Café and Swing Café, and visitors can also enjoy the community craft centre and some retail therapy.
