Mountain Bike the Swartberg Pass, Oudtshoorn

Biking through the Swartberg passTake a rip-roaring, high velocity mountain bike adventure down the Swartberg Pass. It’s a bit like riding a bucking bronco, but it’s great fun and the scenery is out of this world.

Backpacker’s Paradise in Oudtshoorn has bikes for hire and provides a taxi service to the top of the pass. It’s all downhill after that. Adrenalin junkies can ignore the rest breaks if they choose and instead hurtle down the pass at supersonic speed, but it’s not a requirement.

Those who prefer a more sedate pace can take all day over the ride to enjoy the fynbos-covered mountains and the crystal clear fresh air. Be extra careful during the Kunstefees, though, because the pass is likely to be infested with revellers.

On the way home you can stop at the Cango Caves, the ostrich farms, Wilgewandel Holiday Farm and the Cango Wildlife Ranch using the discounted entrance tickets that you receive as part of the bike tour.
