Passed this way going from George to De Rust and our driver quipped concerning the bungee jumping - 'They have an offer today; half price, no strings attached'. No way would you get me bungee jumping, even for free. Fabulous scenery along this route.

We travelled in the direction from George - so uphill. The road is very good and there's passing places to overtake slower traffic. There are a couple of viewing spots but they're all on the downward side and you can't make a right turn if...More

No other word to describe the experience, but I am more than grateful that I didnt have to negotiate my way through the pass, travelling on an oxwagon, like the trekkers did! The road, recently re-surfaced and expertly cambered was an absolute joy to travel...More
