Mountain Passes reached a new milestone last month with a new record of 24,429 page views in a single month. Our international and local rankings are now really going places. This week we head north and south to the extremes of our borders with three diverse offerings. From the green mountains of Mpumalanga all the way to Cape Town's Atlantic seaboard.

1. Camps Bay Drive - Did you know that Camps Bay was named after Frederick von Kampzt? Read this history and discover the power of the Cape Doctor as you cyber drive this suburban pass.

2. Mokobulaan Pass - A major gravel road pass (both in altitude gained and length) that traverses the Mokobulaan Nature Reserve south of Lydenburg in Mpumalanga. This is one for the adventure set.

3. Victoria Road/12 Apostles - A well-known and much loved coastal road that is beautifully built and offers smoothly banked curves with perfect scenery and two shipwrecks thrown in for good measure.

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.
