We left Pretoria mid-morning on July 17, after a stop to stock up on supplies for the week. From there, we headed south, toward Nelspruit and the start of The Panorama Route, which is a scenic drive, with amazing vistas and interesting places to get out and take in the sights. It winds gloriously through the mountains and pine forests of the area. We took in some truly amazing views, including waterfalls, canyons, rain forests, pine forests, and even some fairly significant (and kind of scary) wildfires, on our way to The Shoe, where we were to stay for the night. It was a lovely day, and we were thankful we built an extra day in to our agenda to make this scenic route possible.
