About Bloukrans Pass

Bloukrans River Bridge, just beyond Nature's Valley in the Western Cape, is famous for its bungi jump, reputed to be the highest commercial bungi in the world at 216 metres. But the Bloukrans Pass is one of several passes found in the Tsitsikamma.

Did you know? Bloukrans Pass is as incredible as the Groot River Pass with steep ravines and more than its own share of 90 degree turns. It is arguably the most spectacular of the passes in this area.

These passes are part of the old route with tree-canopied winding roads that, despite their being slightly run-down and as a result sometimes closed, are well worth driving as it makes such a beautiful alternative to the N2. Instead of driving across the high bridges like the Bloukrans bridge, you get to see them from the old road. Before driving through the Bloukrans Pass, one passes through the Groot River Pass.

With Plettenberg Bay behind you, take a bit of a detour off the N2 just before the toll road that takes one through the Tsitsikamma. This old road travels through farmland and fynbos clad countryside along the slopes above the Groot River.

Watch out, as the road through the Groot River Pass makes a rather sudden hairpin turn, descending from the top at a more than dizzying rate. The views from the top, and whilst sending it down the pass, are pretty incredible though. The pass then takes one through the pretty village of Nature's Valley, worth a stop over if you can to take a stroll along its lagoon that forms part of the Groot River estuary, and onto the beaches here – remote, deserted during off peak season and absolutely beautiful.

Leaving Nature's Valley takes one on to the Bloukrans River Pass. There is an initial low level bridge crossing the Groot River. Just north of here you will be able to look across at the toll road to the hugely high Bloukrans bridge.
