Lovely tarred pass in perfect condition! Travelling to the Cederberg Mountains have just become a pleasure with the good quality of the roads. No reason not to visit this special part of South Africa.

A nice route from ClanWilliam into the more rural Cederberg area. Stunning views and magnificent rock formations can be seen while driving the Pakhuispas.
