Entry to the Baviaanskloof Wilderness Area
Monday, 5th March 2018
The Road is open! - Please note that certain parts of the Baviaanskloof Road (within the Wilderness Area) are not suitable for sedan vehicles and small LDVs at any stage.
Most of the establishments listed on this website, however, can be reached with sedan cars since the problem stretch of road is located in the middle.
Provided you enter from the direction closest to your destination you will therefore be OK. Be safe and phone ahead to enquire and remember to drive carefully, whatever vehicle you use.
