God's Window is situated in a patch of indigenous forest where many flowering and aromatic plants flourish. A visit is also made to the historical mining village of Pilgrims Rest. It is a great example of a mining town, which developed in the gold rush and flourished in the 1870's. Gold was discovered here in 1873 and the town was declared a national monument in 1986.

The Park is named after Paul Kruger the then sitting president of the old Transvaal Republic, who proclaimed the Sabi Reserve in 1897.
