Swartberg Mountain Information - Karoo (South Africa) 


The Swartberg (Black Mountains), as described by Bulpin, is a 200km long barrier between the Little and Great Karoo. One of the most beautiful and spectacular range of mountains in South Africa that is well worth a visit. 
The Bushman called this mountain Kango (water or wet mountains) due to the number of streams flowing down the slopes. 
Prince Albert is at the foot of mountains of the northern interior and Great Karoo expanse, and Oudtshoorn a little more than 20km to the opposite side that provides a good challenge for the cyclist and running enthusiast. 
The famed Gamkas Kloof or Die Hell (the abyss) is only accessible, by road, from a road that turns off at the top of the Swartberg Pass. This road is quite tricky to negotiate and is best left to a 4 x 4 vehicle, and preferably a driver with local knowledge. 
Self catering accommodation is available in this rather isolated ravine in restored period houses. 
The Swartberg pass was built between 1881 and 1888 by Thomas Bain, son of the famous Andrew Geddes Bain who built Baines Kloof and many more. 
The dry-stone retaining walls are still in place and almost 120 years old! For the tourist it offers exceptional beauty and a lot of time should be set aside to travel the 24 km of pass as there are lots of opportunities to stop for photographs, a rest or perhaps a delightful pick nic sampling some of the local wine and produce.
