What to expect

From Oudtshoorn you will travel to the southern foothills of the Swartberg (Black Mountain) Mountains, to start the 900m ascent of the Swartberg Pass. This pass is a national monument, took 4 years to construct in the 1800s, and was constructed by Thomas Bain, who was a world-renowned road engineer. Get close to nature and explore the spectacular Sandstone formations dating back more than 300 million years. Feast your eyes on the full splendor of diverse “fynbos” species ranging from various Protea species as well as “cone bush” and “pin cushions”.

There is time for an optional leisure walk before the descend of the pass en-route to Prins Albert, where you will enjoy a light lunch. Meiringspoort is an incredible visit of a mountain pass, where you cross the same river 25 times in 25kms. An interesting part of this tour is the information the guide will give you on the Attequa Khoi Culture. They were one of the biggest tribes within the Cape, maintaining a nomadic lifestyle. Your guide will also share with you the medicinal attributes of the various Fynbos herbs which were orally transferred from generation to generation by the Khoi tribe.
