    Default Long weekend road trip: Cape to Montagu

    Hello peoples

    I am planning a trip from my home town in Brackenfell to a place called African Game Lodge outside of Montagu for the long weekend in September.
    This is the route I am planning on taking there and back:
    https://www.google.co.za/maps/dir/Br...33.8815898!3e0


    Outbound:
    Brackenfell > Touws River > Ouberg Pass > Driekuilshoogte Pass > African Game Lodge

    Return:
    African Game Lodge > Driekuilshoogte Pass > Strykhoogte Pass > Scheepers Hoogte Pass > Franschhoek Pass > Brackenfell

    Any one driven the highlighted gravel passes recently?
    Any interesting things I should be on aware of?
    Alternative route suggestions?

    Thanks

    Werner no problem on those passes. People travel them daily with platkarre. Interesting routes for the uninitiated

    Just make sure about the Franschhoek pass. Is that not still closed?

    Done those roads many times with the bike. All easy gravel roads.

    Enjoy!
