Scenic Drives

7 passes Drive

Upon exiting Knysna on the N2 towards George, drive over the white bridge and turn right immediately after the bridge. This road will take you on to the PhantomPass. At the top of PhantomPass you will reach a t-junction connecting you with the Rheenendal Road. Turn right. This road will continue to take you past Rheenendal village (Tottie`s eatery, petrol station, shop and postal agency is your landmark on the left hand side) and on to where the tar soon gives way to gravel (landmark is Homtini Guest Farm on your left), and the road winds down to an concrete bridge across the Homtini River. After the bridge, the road climbs out of the gorge, passes through farmlands, then drops again to the KarataraRiver. After crossing the KarataraRiver on a single-lane bridge, the road passes the Karatara forestry settlement. The next pass leads through the gorge of the HoogekraalRiver, and the one after this takes you across the Diep River. You reach the tar again roughly 35 km from Rheenendal, and soon after this you pass the small settlement of Woodville. Turn right onto the gravel road signposted ‘Big Tree and Picnic Spot’. Return to the tarred road and turn right, taking note of your kilometres. After a little over 3 km, turn right onto a gravel road for ‘Saasveld’. The road now negotiates three more river-valley passes. Note your kilometres as you cross the Touw River, and 4,6 km later keep straight, onto the tar, for George. You then cross the Silver River, and after this the Kaaimans River. The old stone bridges over the Silver and Kaaimans Rivers have been proclaimed National Monuments.
