Swartberg Pass


Swartberg Pass

The road is supported in places by hand-packed stonewalls, a trademark of brilliant road engineer Thomas Charles Bain. Along the way, there are relics of an old prison, toll hut and other interesting historical sites. Often covered with snow in winter, the mountain’s unique micro-climate supports fynbos and a rich birdlife in contrast with the arid zone flora and fauna outside its cool shady kloofs.
