1. We have refurbished the 3 part video series on the Swartberg Pass. This page gets the most hits on our website. We have changed the format from a three page format and edited it to a more manageable single page, plus we have re-narrated all three videos to provide up to date information and additional historical details. We really like the result and feel we have done justice to one of South Africa's most iconic passes. It is also a form of tribute to Thomas Bain.
2. Snyders Poort is a very remote gravel pass "doer in die Karoo". If you like off the beaten track stuff, then this one's for you.
3. Rooipoort Pass is fairly close to Sutherland. Save this one for a mid-winter breakaway of celestial proportions.
4. Rooikloof Pass lies just south of Sutherland and like the Rooipoort Pass (above) they are both named for the red coloured mountains through which they traverse.
That's it from us. Enjoy the cyber driving. There's plenty more on the way with a rash of smaller passes in the Northern Cape scheduled for production this week.
