It a beautiful drive through Bainskloof. Campsite for day visitors is noisy as it is next to road. Nice in Summer to swim in river. Can make a braai but lots of baboons that come very close so keep foodstuffs safe.

We had a awesome, beautiful drive along the Bains Kloof Pass. How amazing was the road rising and falling along the mountains and valleys. Great drive.
