1. Van Der Stel Pass - is a long gravel pass between Bot River and the Theewaterskloof Dam. It's an easy pass to drive, but the scenery is fabulous.
2. Floorshoogte Pass - a tarred pass on the R43 between Villiersdorp and Caledon offering a drive over the biggest dam wall in the Western Cape with expansive views over wheat and canola fields.
3. Karwyderskraal Pass - a minor gravel pass between Fisherhaven/Bot River and the Hemel en Aarde Valley
These three passes can easily be driven in a single day.
Next week we head back to the Northern Cape to complete the final six passes in that province. For those of you with GPS savvy, please let us know how the route files are working and if there are any technical glitches.
