It was 12 years since we were last up the pass. It is still beautiful and well worth the drive. Unique beauty.

The views are fantastic, but the road needs regrading. It was an experience that should not be missed.

The drive was very scenic. Not the most difficult drive, but I guess it depends on the car. The quality of the road was very good, with loose gravel but no rocks. Not much protection on the sides if you move too close to the edge.

I always enjoy taking a detour to drive this beautiful pass with its magnificent views. The dirt road is well maintained but not for the faint hearted. Go slow and enjoy the spectacular scenery.

Drive carefully, 4x4, stop and enjoy the breathtaking views; you can see as far as 50 km; don't drive there in rain, safety first. it is not for the fainthearted.

Like many great experiences, this one's a bit off the beaten track. But it is one of the most magnificent drives you could ever wish to take, as you wind your way up and through the Swartberg mountains. Go slow, and breathe it in.

I never cease to get tired of driving down the Swartberg Pass, and is has become obligatory to pop open a bottle of bubbly at the bottom by the river!
The views are spectacular, and regular stops are required to take it all in
