About Volunteershoek Pass

By all accounts, Rhodes has a colourful history dating back to the 1880s and features many Victorian buildings.

Did you know? Rhodes benefits from its proximity to Tiffindell Ski Resort in the winter and during summer months has become renowned for fly-fishing.

In 1997 the entire village was proclaimed as a Conservation Area in the Government Gazette which gives it official protection in order to preserve its unique character - it is the only complete village in South Africa that is a National Monument from one end to the other.

Rhodes benefits from its proximity to Tiffindell Ski Resort in the winter and during summer months has become renowned for fly-fishing.

The road from Rhodes to Tiffindell is scenic and steep. You don’t need 4x4, but you do need controlled power, particularly where the cement strips zig-zag their way up the most extreme section.

Approaching Tiffindell Ski Resort you will pass under the highest point in the Eastern Cape (3.001m above sea level). Known by local tribes as ‘Makhollo’ (Great Mother), the Europeans named this peak Ben McDhui after the mountain in Scotland and it is affectionately referred to as "BenMac" by local residents.
