We remain in the Eastern Cape this week with our featured pass offering access to what is arguably South Africa's oldest and most famous mountain top village. This is the land of hobbits, fairies, ghosts and enchanted forests where "Lord of the Rings" type mystical forest settings lure visitors year in and year out.

The Eastern Cape has less than half the total number of passes than the Western Cape, but within those 102 passes there is the most incredible variety to choose from. Our featured pass today is just one of those special passes - peppered with sharp corners, beautiful views and shrouded almost entirely within a forest canopy.

Master Orientation Map

Master Orientation Map We are as passionate about maps as we are about mountain passes. A good map is a thing of beauty that can transport you into the mists of time or get your sense of adventure churning. It is a place to make discoveries about deserts and seas, mountains and lakes; of roads leading into places you have not been before; a place to pore over holiday destinations or weekend camping trips. A map is your window to the world.
