Getaway Magazine has expressed interest in the MPSA project as far back as 2013 and have regularly published articles about us. Get yourself a copy.
Commiting fraud at the fountain
This week we take you on an amazing South African journey, where we showcase our biggest video set ever produced with no less than 14 videos covering this historic pass. We spent over 80 hours editing and producing the videos and about the same amount of time doing the write-up and research. Just as one shouldn't drive this route in a hurry, likewise you should watch the videos at a leisurely pace. The video series have been produced to include most of the history of the area and unfolds in a logical format to form almost a full length movie (66 minutes) when watched in one sitting.

Making the most of mid-week holidays
March and April are the months of public holidays, so why not get out of the city and grab yourslef a mountain pass or two to help shed those city frustrations. With a sobering absence of rain in the Western Cape, planning filming trips is quite straight-forward in terms of rainfall predictability, but the other side of the coin is that we have to contend with dust. With the 21st March looming as a perfect example of a mid-week holiday, we've decided to refilm some of our old footage (still in the fish-eye format).
Mountain Passes South Africa is a website dedicated to the research, documentation, photographing and filming of the mountain passes of South Africa.
Passes are classified according to provinces and feature a text description, Fact File including GPS data, a fully interactive dual-view map and a narrated YouTube video.
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.
