Lovely drive with amazing views. It was a little frightening towards the top as the gravel road was narrow and very winding, but we wouldn't have missed this for the world !!

The most scenic drive we have ever been on it is 27km long and 1,583m above sea level at it's highest point. Oudtshoorn is on the South side and the village of Prince Albert on the North.

The road is gravel and very windy but perfectly safe and easy to drive in a normal car (not sure I would do it if it was raining heavily though).

There are several viewing spots where you can pull over and take in the views which are breathtaking!

We were short on time so drove to the top from Oudtshoorn then back down the same side and stopped at Cango Caves (well worth visiting)
