To make your travel experience to and from Bosch Luys Kloof even more interesting, we’ve added a few more scenic routes. We do, however, recommend investigating the possible routes carefully before you challenge them.
Follow Route 62 – take the N1 from Paarl to Worcester, then branch off on the R62 towards Robertson, Ashton, Montagu, Barrydale, Ladismith – and enjoy lovely scenery, food, wine and interesting stalls and restaurants along the way. Having passed Ladismith, you’ll turn left into Seweweekspoort. If you wish to travel along the N2, you can reach Route 62 via Riversdale while enjoying beautiful scenery and witnessing changes in vegetation from coastal fynbos to Karoo veld as you travel along Garcia Pass. Alternatively, you can also travel via Swellendam to Route 62 via Suurbraak and cross the breathtaking Tradouw Pass.
The N1 is a faster option and to give it an extra twist you can consider two detours. Turn to the Witteberge (to the right) approximately 54km after passing Touws River. This gravel road will lead you along a tarred road from Laingsburg through Vleiland towards the Seweweekspoort. It changes to gravel road later on. After you hit the dirt road, consider taking the Rouxpos detour which links back up with the road you are travelling on.
Travelling from the Garden Route, you can choose the Robinson Pass (Mossel Bay to Oudtshoorn), or the Outeniqua Pass (George to Oudtshoorn).
Departing from Oudtshoorn, you can travel directly to Calitzdorp (along the R62) or take the Cango Caves/Prince Albert road which heads in a northerly direction towards the foot of the Swartberg pass at the restaurant Kobus se Gat. Continue along the Groenfontein road which hugs the southern slopes of the Swartberg mountains and will bring you into Calitzdorp. From Calitzdorp you travel up the Huisrivier Pass and turn into Seweweekspoort at Amalienstein. Turn west (left) before you reach the Cango Caves on the Kruisriver Road to Calitzdorp and back on Route 62. From Calitzdorp you cross the Huisrivier Pass and turn into Seweweekspoort at Amalienstein.
From Mossel Bay, you can follow the R 327 – a road definitely less-travelled. This road will take you through the Langeberg mountain range, over the Gouritz River and through the villages of Herbertsdale and Van Wyks Dorp and back onto Route 62 to Ladismith.
Visitors from Gauteng can visit Prince Albert just off the N1, after passing Beaufort West and challenge the Swartberg Pass. Shortly after the pass, the Kruisrivier Road turns off to the right, to Calitzdorp. At Calitzdorp, you take Route 62 towards Ladismith.
From the N1, turning to the left shortly after Beaufort West onto the N12, you can also explore Meiringspoort, which is similar to Seweweekspoort regarding the rock formations of the Great Swartberg mountains through which it finds its way. Shortly after the poort, you will reach the beautiful little town ‘De Rust’ from where you travel to Oudtshoorn and further on via Route 62.
The N9 is another beautiful road to travel if you would like to explore parts of the Great Karoo and the Eastern Cape, whilst cutting out the N1. This road leads you through towns like Graaff Reinet, Willowmore and Uniondale.
