The Cango Caves and Swartberg Pass are two of South Africa's most scenic attractions.

Cango Caves

This is an enormous underground complex of caverns, the largest two or three of which are easily accessible and dramatically lit to make the most of the striking subterranean formations. The guides that take you around the caves are very knowledgeable and you can learn a lot about the formation and history of this magnificent attraction.

Swartberg Pass

Swartberg PassContinuing on, the tarmac road gives way to a good quality graded road that winds up over the truly spectacular Swartberg Pass, cutting through eons-old strata of rock and affording striking views over the surrounding countryside.

The road then drops down into the town of Prince Albert, isolated from the rest of the country and caught in a Victorian time warp. Tar roads then complete a loop back to Oudtshoorn.
