Coming from Port Elizabeth on the N2, drive through Knysna where you can stock up with some food. Take the N2 direction George. After 6 km you leave the lagoon behind and climb up into a forested area on the N2. Very soon there is a right turn off to Rheenendal, take this turn to the right. Stay on the Rheenendal road for 14 km and follow the road signs to ‘Rheenendal’ until you come to a sign that says HOMTINI PASS.
