Travelling up the pass was a great experience - towing not recommended, and definitely not recommended when going down. Stop at the top for spectacular views!

We took the climb up the Spreeshooghte Pass and down again en route from Sossusvlei to Swakopmund. If you have the time, it’s worth the diversion as the sweeping views out to the west are magnificent. The road Is concrete blocks, so very easy.

There are only 3 steep turns so you need a good car but apart form that, it's easy to drive. It's a nice drive, I would not say breathtaking but I'm glad I came back to Windhoek with that road; I don't think it slowed...More

Very different rock formations which creates some interesting views, some of which feel like the moon? Quite a sinister feeling in places

If you're going from Windhoek to Solitaire, for instance, in the way to Sossusvlei, a nice option is to enter the C24/M47 after Rehoboth, and then take D1261 and D1275 to reach Spreetshoogte Pass. This is a beautiful mountain pass, where there is a parking...More

Stopped here for a picnic lunch. The best picnic place I remember ever seeing - the view was breathtaking! Breathtaking was also the drive down the extremely steep little road from the escarpment. Make sure you have a competent driver in charge who knows how...More

Our first “official” stop on our drive from Windhoek to Sossuvlei, other than stops to use the “bush toilet,” was a magnificent view point, Spreetshoogte Pass. This mountain pass connects the Namib Desert with the Khomas Highland. It is the highest point at 5839 feet...More

This pass offers unbelievable views with the bonus being you have to see it in order to get from Rehoboth to Solitaire even if it is on a D road. When passing Rehoboth on the B1, then proceed with C24 - D1261 - D1275 all...More
