About Lundean's Nek Pass

Lundean's Nek Pass, also sometimes spelt as Lundin's Neck, links the little mountain farming community of Wartrail with the Telle bridge Border Post into Lesotho. In broader terms it links the Witteberge Mountains with Lesotho, and is one of the eight passes you will find in the Eastern Cape.

Did you know? Lundean’s Nek connects this part of the Eastern Cape to the Lesotho border at Telebridge. You may wish to stop in at ‘Woolys of Wartrail’ for a cup of coffee and to admire their emus!

The scenery on the pass, which lies at the southern tip of the southern tip of Lesotho, is incredible. The Witteberge are a series of outlying mountains of the Drakensberg and there is a similar majesty and expansiveness to this pass.

Lundean's Nek Pass on the R393 takes one up to the peak of the 'white mountains' as the Witteberg is known. From the summit one stares out over the Maloti Mountains down into the valley through which runs the Telle River. It is easily one of the more scenic passes in South Africa and, because of its remoteness, unspoilt in terms of having to share it with others.

Some have likened Lundean's Nek to Du Toitskloof Pass in terms of its beauty, but the rocks here are predominantly sandstone not granite. When compared with Naudé's Nek, though, it's a pretty sedate drive as far as gravel passes go.

Wartrail and its surrounds is mainly farming stock, many of them direct descendents of the original 1820 settlers to the region, and there is little development other than the odd farming community or traditional village.

With snow on the mountains or under clear star-studded skies, this part of the country is nigh on perfect and there seems little reason to leave, and all the reason to remain and drink in the views. It isn't known as 'Wild Mountain Country' out here for nothing.
