The Seven Passes Road winds its way through an indigenous forest, over historic stone bridges, through lush farmlands and provides sweeping views over the sparkling Indian Ocean.

The Seven Passes Road winds its way through an indigenous forest, over historic stone bridges, through lush farmlands and provides sweeping views over the sparkling Indian Ocean.
The historic pass built by the pioneer pass builder, Thomas Bain (in the
1890s) it takes about 90 minutes from George to Knysna, but you may elect to do just the section up to Wilderness, as the section is tarred.
Bain built stone bridges in 1892 to replace the drifts
over the Kaaimans River, the Touw River and Swart River.

How to get there:
From Knysna Road (at Pine Lodge) take the NMMU campus turn-off and continue along the Saasveld Road (past the great white entrance to the university campus) onto the old road between George and Wilderness for some lovely forest views, turning right towards Wilderness Heights (if you do not want to go all the way on the old pass).Continue on to view the ‘Map of Africa’ or go down into Wilderness.
Visitors can catch a glimpse of some of the loveliest farms in the area with the Outeniqua Mountains providing spectacular backdrop.

CAUTIONARY NOTE: the road was severely damaged during floods and is ‘fragile’. In several places the road sags or has potholes and these have been marked with signposts in the middle of the surface.

The Gap Trail - Robberg Nature and Marine Reserve

Just outside Plettenberg Bay on the Garden Route is a beautiful, remote rocky peninsula touted as the most popular walking destination in and around Plettenberg Bay.

Vegetation varies from thickets to coastal scrub and mammals in the reserve include the common Duiker and Grysbok.
The self-guided trails mainly follow the cliff edges and include a pristine white beach at Percy’s Bank and a number or rock pools at The Point. The view from the cliff affords trailists an expansive view of the beaches to Plettenberg Bay and a spectacular view of the coastline to the west.

Robberg Nature Reserve is a marine reserve and national monument roughly 4 kilometres in length that sweeps out into the ocean, something like a mini Cape peninsular. Rocks here date back to the early Cretaceous period - roughly 110 million years old - and during the whale season the point is an ideal place to spot whales and dolphins.

There is a boardwalk which crosses the reserve to protect and rehabilitate the vegetation as well as breeding sea birds. Trailists are urged to follow the boardwalk in the interest of conservation.

The 2,1 kilometre circular self-guided trail via The Gap, forms part of the greater Point Trail and crosses challenging rocky terrain and high cliffs. As such inexperienced trailists are advised to take exceptional care as the terrain may be dangerous. Due to strong currents and rogue waves, swimming is not advisable. The trail provides no shade, water or ablution facilities. Trailists need to bring their own water and prepare for protection against sunburn.

Distance: 2,1 km

Duration: ½ hour

Difficulty: Moderate

Features: Spectacular scenery, coastal views, an opportunity to encounter mammals such as the common Duiker and Grysbok, abundant bird life and indigenous flora.

Permits: Bookings for the trail can be made online and permits are available online from Cape Nature at www.capenature.co.za. A sketch map of the trails is also available.

Facilities: Picnic sites and an interpretative centre as well as braai facilities on a wooden deck, offering spectacular sea views. Should trailists choose to overnight, facilities are available at the Point Shack. Reservations may be made at +27 44 802 5300.
