1. The Crossroads Pass - A short, tarred pass close to Machadodorp on the R36 with two interesting historical sites, one of which is the stone structured Blaauboschkraal archeological site.
2. Steenkampsberg Pass - A serious tarred pass near Lydenburg with a 434m altitude gain with superb views from the summit. Did you know that there are 3 mountains in South Africa under the name of Steenkampsberg? Read the page to get the info.
3. Elands Pass - A visually stunning pass, with an uber-tunnel, but with heavy traffic on the N4 at Waterval-Boven (now renamed Emgwenya). So what was wrong with the Dutch Waterval Boven as a good name? Above the waterfall! It's perfect. Lots of history and interesting bits on this one....
With plenty of holidays and long weekends coming up, get your car serviced and plan your trip here with us.
Here's to some of that up-country rain heading to the bone-dry Western Cape!
