Many of the modern passes in South Africa still follow ancient animal migration routes; others are engineering masterpieces that challenge gravity. All take travellers deep into rugged and wild terrain where nature reigns supreme. Passes & Poorts South Africa provides a detailed guide to the most scenic and is packed with information to enrich readers' driving experience, from fauna and flora to the personalities behind the passes. Activities highlighted in each area include favourite hiking trails, mountain biking tracks and 4x4 routes. Each chapter ends with tips on where to eat and stay, from bush camps and self-catering cottages to luxury lodges and hospitable guesthouses. Many passes can be done as drives or weekend trips en route to some of South Africa's most popular holiday destinations; driving others is an adventure in itself. Full-colour maps assist in travel planning and the routes and points of interest are illustrated with photographs by the author.
