This week we focus on the Outeniqua mountains in the Southern Cape and on one of it's three great passes. Once again, Thomas Bain features as the builder/designer of this lovely mountain pass, but the original road was a lot more dramatic than the modern road we travel on today.
As from this week we will be publishing all refilmed passes as they are published per week, plus any new passes, (besides our featured pass) in these weekly news releases.

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.
