Mountains

An Oasis in the Kalahari

TRYGVE ROBERTS of Mountain Passes South Africa explores the gateway to one of the Northern Cape’s hidden gems, the Witsand Nature Reserve.

A short pass to beauty

The Bloenek Pass has nothing special about it in terms of length or altitude gain, except for one thing – it is situated in the Pilanesberg Game Reserve, which makes it a popular route. TRYGVE ROBERTS of Mountain Passes South Africa explores this beautiful little pass.

Gateways to magical Magalies

For city dwellers from Pretoria and Johannesburg, Magaliesberg is a quick escape from the hustle and bustle, offering many adventure and family activities. Getting there sees travellers traversing some suburban passes, including Theo Martin’s Poort and Horn’s Nek Pass. TRYGVE ROBERTS of Mountain Passes South Africa guides us through.

The challenge continues…

Much more than “just another mountain pass tour”, the annual Ben 10 Eco Challenge gives adventurers a sense of achievement and bragging rights for those successfully completing it. For Trygve Roberts, of Mountain Passes South Africa, this annual trek is a highlight on his calendar.
