God’s Window is a popular vantage point along the Drakensbergescarpment, at the southern extremity of the Nature Reserve. Here, sheer cliffs plunge over 700 metres to the lowveld. From this escarpment—a mostly unbroken rampart of cliffs—opens a vista into the lowvelt expanse and escarpment forests, the Eden-like aesthetic appearance of which prompted the name. On a clear day it is possible to see over the Kruger National Parktowards the Lebombo Mountains on the border with Mozambique. God’s Window features prominently in the plot of the 1980 cult film The Gods Must Be Crazy. The original Window is a rock that is set further back on a private farm and due to Quarry operations and tree plantation farming this actual rock that looks like a square window could not be used, therefore the site was moved by the government to the edge of the escarpment. A viewing platform near the car park gives extensive views down the gorge to the plain below. Text: Wikipedia Source link:
