We did the Swartberg Pass with Roeland last year and had such a good time, we booked him again (almost a year in advance!!) for his tour of 'Die Hel', also known as Gamkaskloof. He's such a genuinely nice guy; it was hugs all round...More

First, the bad point (and it's more of an observation than criticism) - He's not the best at technology; I was worried he'd not replied to my emails to confirm our booking, so thought he may not turn up (especially as we'd booked several months...More

Firstly, I must mention our guide Alistair, who went above and beyond to give us the most amazing trip. With his knowledge of the Swartberg pass, it's formation, the flora & fauna, along with his generally open and friendly manner. We could not have wished...More

Roeland and his 4x4 Swartberg Pass tours are the highlight of any visit to Oudtshoorn and I can't recommend it strongly enough. A full day consists of 3 main things to see: First up and over Swartberg Pass where Roeland explains all sorts of fascinating...More
