Things To Do


Montagu Pass

The Montagu Pass was opened in 1848, having taken 3 years to build by some 250 convicts at a cost of 36,000 Pounds Sterling. It lays claim to being the oldest, unaltered pass still in use in South Africa and covers 17,1 kms of magnificently scenic narrow, gravel road driving, ascending from the tiny hamlet of Herold, on the northern side of the Outeniqua Mountains up and over the summit and then all the way down to the outskirts of George. 124 York Street, George, 6530

Witness the wild splendour of the Kammanassieberg, just north of Uniondale. This isolated mountain rises abruptly from the surrounding plain and is home to a unique and fascinating nature reserve. Kammanassie originates from the indigenous Khoisan word meaning ‘mountain of water’. Streams and rivers flow in deep narrow kloofs from the dramatic crags. Hardy fynbos and afro-montain forest cling to the slopes. Sugarbirds, raptors, klipspringers and Cape Mountain Zebra make the reserve their home. 1 Kerk St, Uniondale, 6460

Prince Alfreds Pass

Thomas Bain began the building of this historic pass in 1860 as an access way between the Langkloof and Knysna. The drystone retaining walls built by the convict labourers can still be seen supporting the twisting gravel road. 'Tiekeliefie’ ridge is where the convicts were finally given their ‘ticket of leave’ in 1867. The road turns beneath sharp hanging crags of sandstone, tiny succulents and lichens cling to the cliff edges and waterfalls gush through the ravine. Prince Alfreds Pass
