Take the N2 towards Grahamstown and pass Blue Water Bay. Take the next exit to the R335 marked Motherwell / Markman. Turn left and continue on this road. Drive through a small town called ADDO. Travel a further 10km until you see the Zuurberg Mountain Village turnoff on your left. Turn left – the road will become a GRAVEL road. Drive 16 km up the original Zuurberg Mountain Pass until you reach the hotel. You do not need a 4x4 vehicle to drive on this gravel road (from the Addo side), but drive slowly and be on the look-out for oncoming traffic when going around the sharp, narrow bends. Keep to the left side of the road. The drive up the Pass is “naturally” bumpy, but is very scenic with expansive views of the mountains. It goes through 5 different biomes with an abundance of beautiful flora and fauna. In order to maximise your enjoyment, allow 20 minutes for this part of your journey. Be cautious when; driving up the Pass at night, when there is heavy mist and during/after heavy rainfall. We look forward to welcoming you. See you on top of the mountain! If in doubt, contact us.
