After reading about the wonderful village of Rhodes (and let's hope certain political people dont get ideas about a name change) and watching the video and those very steep gradients, you can decide if this drive is for you or not. On the day of filming, an 1100cc Fiat Uno ascended the pass without too much difficulty, so there's hope for everyone!
We explore the little village of Rhodes - a much sought after winter destination which rated in Getaway Magazine's top 10 secret places in South Africa. From it's Scotttish settler history, to MTB races, hiking, climbing, fishing and snow skiing (we produced a short video on Tiffindell Ski Resort too) or simply putting your feet up in front of a big log fire, this is a destination worth going to, but you absolutely must book in advance. The village is a perfect springboard for exploring some of the finest mountain passes the Eastern Cape has to offer and they're all on our website!
