The long weekend is here! Hundreds of thousands will take to the roads for the long weekend break and of course, it's school holidays as well. Will this be another annual road slaughter, or will those impatient drivers take a chill pill and think about the safety of others? I'll let you decide.....
We have been covering some of the exquisite passes in Mpumalanga again this week and there's still plenty more to come. The Drakensberg escarpment is something of a pass fest and the area around Sabie, Grasnek and Pilgrims Rest is a national gem. You can check out another three of these passes below.

1. Hennings Pass is a remote (4WD only) out and back route near the Verloren Valei through wild and rugged mountain terrain.
2. Jaap se Hoogte is a 6 km tarred pass near Lydenburg which not too many people know about.
3. Kaapsehoop Pass connects Ngodwana (the Sappi village) with Nelspruit. A nice alternative to the N4 and allows a visit to the mountaintop village. This one is a real gem!
Till next week....... Take care on the roads.
