The Abel Erasmus pass has amazing vistas. As you travel from Hoedspruit to Ohrigstad after the tunnel, at one stage there is a very steep downhill on your left without barrier rails.

Stunning views of lichen covered mountains unlike anything I have seen before. Definitely worth the effort as an add on to the Panorama Blyde River Canyon route. We started early from Satara Camp in the Kruger and easily made Joburg before dark.
