The Long Tom Pass is a great drive along a well paved road between Lydenburg and Sabie. Take the time to stop and take in the great beautiful views. A photographers dream, all year round.

We were travelling to Sabie and crossed the Long Tom Pass en route. The views and surrounds are nothing but spectacular. It's a pass that one must definately undertake if you are lucky enough to tour Mpumalanga.

Scarry if it is misty but worth driving the pass. Once you are down the pass it is all flat towards lydenburg. Do drive safely.
