Longest passes ranking Featured

Read 25605 times

South Africa's 100 longest passes in kilometers - listed from longest to shortest. These statistics are regularly updated as new passes are listed.

Please note that although Prince Alfreds Pass comes 2nd on our table, it remains the longest pass as the Baviaans-Kouga is not a proper road in many sections (jeep track only) and it crosses private and state land requiring a permit, therefore does not qualify as a 'publicly accessible road' by definition. We have hyperlinked the top 10 for your convenience and an easy click through.

Master Orientation Map

Master Orientation Map We are as passionate about maps as we are about mountain passes. A good map is a thing of beauty that can transport you into the mists of time or get your sense of adventure churning. It is a place to make discoveries about deserts and seas, mountains and lakes; of roads leading into places you have not been before; a place to pore over holiday destinations or weekend camping trips. A map is your window to the world.
