Karoo - Day1 Leg2 - Du Toitskloof pass

When you get to the Du Toitskloof pass, one can either take the old road which is about +/-10km longer and goes up and over the mountains, or you can pay the toll fee and ride through the tunnel.

We opted for the scenic route over the mountains to see if we could get a glimpse of Table Mountain. Unfortunately the visibility was only about 20km or so with all the mist in the air, so we could not see the mountain. We did however still get an awesome view from the top of the pass and over the other side.

This is the daily blog from A short series on the Karoo Motorbike tour we took on during September 2011.
More South and Southern African motor cycle tours on our list of tour route summaries are available, where we explore these sorts of motorcycle tour routes. Just choose one of our events and reserve yourself a place on one of the future motorcycle adventure safari events.
