Tour Details

Tour Includes

  • On your tour you will travel North to the Southern foothills of the Swartberg Mountains. From here commence a 900 meter scenic eco-tour up the world renowned Swartberg Pass. At the summit of the Swartberg Pass (1580 meter above sea level) enjoy a scenic walk on this National monument. The Pass has a gravel surface and was constructed by renowned road engineer, Thomas Bain over a 4 year period and opened on 10 January 1888.

 

  • From the “top” of the Swartberg Pass enjoy picture perfect panoramic views over the Klein -and Great Karoo. The dry-stone technique used to construct the pass required extreme manual labour and is as solid as it was when constructed 127 years ago. A qualified eco guide will accompany you on the optional scenic walk and introduce you to the spectacular Sandstone formations dating back more than 300 million years. You may even spot a soaring Verreaux Eagle, Jackal Buzzard or any of the many species of Sunbirds feasting on the nectar of the proteas. The agility of the Klipspringer (small antelope) over the rugged sandstone formations will astound you.
