Description
Du Toitskloof Pass, (English: Du Toit 's Gap) Is situated in the Western Cape province of South Africa, on the Regional road R101 between Paarl and Worcester. The pass was named after Francois Du Toit, a 17th century Huguenot pioneer who settled in the foothills. It was initially an animal track where a road was built around the time of World War II. Originally 48km long, the pass climbed to 820 m. The Huguenot tunnel was opened in 1988 (the largest curved structure in South Africa) shortens the road by 11 km - it is operated as a toll road. There is an impressive viaduct on the Paarl approach side. The surrounding peaks often sport a covering of snow and the Mountain Club of South Africa has huts in the area. Du Toit's peak is the highest mountain at 1995 m.

Kruger Park - Lower Sabie
Kruger Park - Lower Sabie (Website)

Lower Sabie graces the banks of the Sabie River, one of the few perennial rivers to flow through the Kruger National Park. Visitors cannot but feel soothed by the view towards the river and the Lebombo Mountains beyond. In this rest camp, the bounty and plenitude of nature are very evident, eloquently symbolised by the most conspicuous of its numerous trees, the mighty sycamore fig, which provides generously for the livelihood of many birds and insects. Not only do these giants produce fruit at least twice a year, but different trees produce fruit at different times, extending the gifts of life over many months. Watching the endless procession of animals coming to drink at the Sabie River establishes a sense of one's own place in the eternal cycle.
