Somewhere in nowhere in South Africa

Off the beaten track at Prince Alfred Pass, North of Knysna, South Africa. If you go there you need a vehicle that can withstand severe potholes in a gravel road that meanders through the mountains.

The Prince Alfred’s Pass ….

… between the towns of Avontuur in the Eastern Cape and Knysna in the Western Cape is not for the faint hearted and for small cars.

It’s 84 kilometers of poorly maintained gravel road with numerous (deep) potholes, ravines, desolation and halfway the possibility for a refreshment. It took us almost 5 hours but this offbeat track was truly worthwhile the challenge. Some stunning views; just at those locations where we could not get out of the car (on one side a ravine and the other side a rock wall). So most of the pictures are taken in and around the ‘refreshment center ( 😀 )
