Overnight? Stay at accommodation in Mossel Bay, in Garden Route

Situated just between Mossel Bay (along the Garden Route) and Oudtshoorn (in the Karoo) is the magnificent Attakwaskloof 4x4 Trail in the Outeniqua Nature Reserve. This part of the Garden Route is particularly breath-taking in terms of its aesthetic appeal, and is ideally experienced from the comfort of your vehicle on this 4x4 trail.

The pass along which the trail is laid out was completed in 1869. The trail is 20 kilometres long, and takes about three hours to explore. It is a gravel road that requires a low range, high clearance vehicle, and drivers capable of handling a trail of a 3 to 4 grading.

There is a shorter, tarred version of this path, which is far more frequently used, leaving this gravel pass to those with a penchant for exploring. Thanks to the history of the Attakwaskloof Pass, there are a number of historical buildings (block houses and a toll house) that add a unique sense of heritage and character to the trail. These combine with the natural beauty of the area to create a really fun, exciting adventure for 4 x 4 enthusiasts.

There are camping facilities nearby as well as a 52 kilometre mountain biking route.
