The spectacular Naude’s Nek Pass is the highest commercial mountain pass in South Africa with a summit of over 2,920m above sea level.  The pass connects Maclear with our beautiful, historic village, Rhodes.  A particularly challenging pass to travel in winter when heavy snowfalls are common.  It is recommended that local advice be sought before attempting this pass.
