... is located in the Panorama South area of the Northeast region in South Africa.

This pleasant little town is situated at altitude and with fabulous views down the Mpumalanga Drakensberg Escarpment to the Lowveld and Kruger National Park.

With roots back in the goldrush days of the late nineteenth century, the town remains pleasantly old-fashioned and, despite the amount of tourist traffic coming through, it is also still a relatively peaceful little place.

The town is best known as the start of the stunning mountain drive through the adjacent Blyde Canyon Upper area. Closer to hand is Graskop Gorge, containing a moderately impressive waterfall. Graskop also has a reputation as 'the home of the stuffed pancake', with a string of suitably themed restaurants on main street.

Flycatcher Castle ... is a rather bizarre option, an overtly faux castle on the edge of a residential area.

For higher rated accommodation, refer to the Hazyview area to the southeast.
