This pass easy to travel through with a normal car to Malealea lodge. When you get to the top of the pass you see through the gates an African Paradise, one of the best views whilst driving through the real Africa. A real must!

On the road to Malealea Lodge and village, on a very bad dirt road. Good views but a long road to get there

Amazing scenery, but very tough roads. You need a 4x 4 or you're in trouble and I wouldn't want to tackle it in the rainy season!
