Africa has so many amazingly beautiful places to visit. When I thought about a bucket list for Southern Africa, I wanted to make it realistic. Bucket lists, by definition, are basically wish lists. This list is probably not your typical bucket list, rather it’s a list of other lesser known, possibly less touristy places to visit in Southern Africa. So here is my alternative Southern Africa bucket list.
Click on the heading above to take you to Mountain Passes South Africa website where you can watch a video of the pass and you can see why they describe it as “the mother of all South African mountain passes. Statistically and in every sense, it out distances, out climbs, and outperforms all it’s competitors with consummate ease to have become the most iconic gravel pass in SA.”
We love road trips and gravel road driving. Having done Swartberg Pass last year, Sani Pass is definitely the No.1 Mountain Pass I would love to do as part of my Southern Africa bucket list travel experience! My husband did it last year on his BMW GS 1200 motorbike and in his words “sheer fear and determination are the only things that got us through it, never again!” I’m sure he means, never again on a motorbike, only in a 4×4.
Would I take the kids? Probably not.
Here’s a photo I took of Swartberg Pass last year:
