Seven passes in three days.

It was time for yet another road trip, and it was decided that we will take “detour” on a three day trip through the Cape Winelands.

Our journey was one with a purpose – to promote the Wilderness area as a holiday destination for travellers from the Cape Winelands, wanting to explore The Garden Route.

“Detour” was filled with fuel, luggage was loaded, and off we went. Our journey took us past The Garden Route National Park in Albertinia, where elephant and giraffe can be seen from the N2, and into Heidelberg, from where we decided to take a trip through the Tradouw Pass.

After experiencing the beauty of the scenery that surrounded us, it was agreed that we will explore some of the passes that are in abundance in the cape winelands.

Travelling through these areas one gets an appreciation of the natural beauty that we sometimes just drive past. From the Tradouws pass we travelled to Barrydale and then off to Montague through Ashton, where we almost got stuck last year on our way back after we delivered some horses to Moreesburg when the Kogmanskloofriver was in flood.

We spent the night in Worcester at the Golden Valley Lodge. The lodge is situated next to the Golden Valley casino and entertainment centre and offers the traveller tranquillity, beauty, affordability and comfort. After a scrumptious dinner at the Kuipers Restaurant we settled in for the night.

The next two days we travelled though a number of towns in the Cape Winelands, where we made contact with various role players in the tourism industry including tourism information bureaus, wine farms, and places offering holiday activities and accommodation.

Brochures, ideas and travel information was exchanged, in order to increase awareness about Wilderness, and what our town can offer the traveller.

Our trip took us through the mountains and we travelled over a number of mountain passes amongst others, the Scenic Bainskloof Pass, the old Du Toits Kloof Pass, the Sir Lowry’s Pass, the Houwhoek Pass, Kogmanskloof Pass and again the Kaaimans River Pass and the Silver river Pass to complete our own journey of seven passes.
