First, the bad point (and it's more of an observation than criticism) - He's not the best at technology; I was worried he'd not replied to my emails to confirm our booking, so thought he may not turn up (especially as we'd booked several months...More

I made the mistake of driving through it too quickly - It is advisable to stop at all lookout points and walk around to take in the power of the mountains - panoramic views galore. At the summit may get windy or cold - but...More

I just spent a beautiful day in the Swartberg area with Roeland. We started with a visit to an ostrich farm (okay, but very touristy), followed by a visit to the Cango Caves (very impressive and worth visiting - even if (like myself) you are...More

Firstly, I must mention our guide Alistair, who went above and beyond to give us the most amazing trip. With his knowledge of the Swartberg pass, it's formation, the flora & fauna, along with his generally open and friendly manner. We could not have wished...More

Roeland and his 4x4 Swartberg Pass tours are the highlight of any visit to Oudtshoorn and I can't recommend it strongly enough. A full day consists of 3 main things to see: First up and over Swartberg Pass where Roeland explains all sorts of fascinating...More

I wasn't sure whether to do the Pass in my VW Polo hire car or to do the guided tour with Roeland in his 4x4. In the end, fearing for the health of the Polo and keen to learn as much about the Pass as...More

Booked a private tour with Roeland. He was great. Taught me a lot about the geology and fauna. He knows the pass really well and is very enjoyable. Nice guy. Definitely recommend. Price-wise, best if you have at least two people.
