Graskop is an historic small town not far from the border of Kruger National Park. Originally set up as a gold mining town in the 1880s, it has maintained much of its historic town center and has become a popular tourist attraction in the area. One of the reasons visitors go to Graskop is that it's an ideal starting point for trips to see natural wonders like the Blyde River Canyon, Mac Mac Falls, and the viewpoint known as God's Window, which overlooks the Drakensberg escarpment.
Other nearby historic towns include Pilgrim's Rest and Sabie, and Graskop is also the starting point for a tour of the Panorama Route.
Graskop is located roughly between Pilgrim's Rest and Sabie, close to the Mount Sheba Nature Reserve and just under 45 miles west of Kruger National Park.
