Garden Route

Seven Passes

The Seven Passes

On the Seven Passes route in South Africa you’ll cross 7 rivers: the Swart, Hoogekraal, Homtini, Karatara, Silver, Kaaimans and Touw. The crossings route includes single-lane bridges, forestry settlements, a gold rush town called Millwood and the Big Tree picnic site where woodland fairies are said to hover.      A delightful detour off the N2 coastal highway on the Garden Route is known as South Africa’s Seven Passes route between George and Knysna. It’s a scenic route which passes guest farms, tiny wooden settlements and whisks visitors through the dramatic Phantom Pass, named for a butterfly and not a ghost.

The Seven Passes route is a 75-kilometre-long trip that takes you past 7 gorges cut deep by rivers flowing to the sea. Legendary engineer Thomas Bain designed the road in 1883, but it was a sweaty business for the great road engineer.
