    My wife and I travelled this pass heading south from Avontuur to Knysna on a Sunday in early March 2024. We were fortunate to have clear skies and warm weather throughout. This allowed us to appreciate the full splendour of the many breathtaking views and impressive engineering feat that Thomas Bain and the construction crew achieved.

    In clear dry weather this pass is achievable in a normal sedan/saloon car, but I recommend using at least a 2-wheel drive SUV (as we used) to ensure you have sufficient ground clearance. If tackling the pass in wet weather then a 4 x 4 would be highly recommended.

    If intending to use this pass I recommend familiarizing yourself beforehand with the excellent series of videos produced by Mountain Passes South Africa. This gives insight into what to expect and provides guidance on how best to drive the pass.

    The description was “moderately challenging”. It’s a bit more than that. Just beautiful at the river. Perfect for private swimming. If you find my driver’s licence in the river (fell out when I took out my camera) please return it!

    My wife and I went up to the Cloud 9 lookout recently and the word “spectacular” springs to mind, but probably doesn’t justify the views on offer. Definitely a fantastic view point and well worth a trip.

    We had a lot of fun as a family with the FlyTime team. It was the first flight for our kids and Sue and Peter looked after them both very well. Booking via Whatsapp was very easy and arranging an appointment was very easy, depending on the weather. We would always fly with the team again.

    Bucket list stuff!

    The Southern Yachting Academy has it all! Cutting edge & self-paced course content ~ brilliant for distance learning.

    The biggest win for me was being able to complete the entire practical course plus the exams in only 7 days. All thanks to world class instruction from Captain Ben and Owner Mark Orpen (class act).

    The cherry on top is the exquisite setting of the Knysna Lagoon. Unforgettable experience, a must for wanna-be sailers!

    A great trip out with Brian at a quiet time and just the two of us on board. It was too rough to pass out the heads but stilll a good fun ride around the bay. No need for nerves and loads of sights to see.
