Regardless of whether this pass is approached from the north or the south, you are in for a treat of passes. From the south one can route from Ceres via the Gydo, Blinkberg and Grootrivierhoogte passes and the northern approach would typically route from the N7 over the Nieuwoudts, Uitkyk and Kromrivier passes.
Our featured pass this week is a slow gravel road - as in 20 kph - that provides a much safer, but slower route than the main road over the Matjiesrivier, which is often flooded and dangerous during the wet winter months. This road provides access to beautiful rock formations and some fine rock climbing routes, as well as traversing the well-known Cederberg Tourist Park or Kromrivier farm.
We dig into the 7th generation history of the Nieuwoudt family who still run the farm today. Come and cyber-drive it with us as we show just you the raw beauty of the Cederberg and how deep and dangerous the Matjiesrivier crossing can be.....
