Pilgrim’s Rest is a small village and a living monument to the feverish gold rush days of the late 1800s.
Exploring South African history as a family is a rewarding experience and there is no better place to do this than the historical town of Pilgrim’s Rest, one of South Africa’s much-loved heritage sites and a major draw card for the Kruger Lowveld region.
Situated on the beautiful Panorama Route, Pilgrim’s Rest is a small village and a living monument to the feverish gold rush days of the late 1800s. For the outdoorsy family, there is fly-fishing on the Blyde River, golf at the nine-hole course and, of course, a visit to the diggings and panning for gold.
The town has seven museums that are open daily and offer insight into the great story of the town. There are several accommodation establishments, catering for most budgets, and cafés and restaurants, catering for all palates.
Kruger Lowveld offers a large variety of accommodation, places to go and things to do. Find it all here...
