Polokwane - The lush greenery of cycads and palms coupled with spectacular waterfalls enclosed within a majestic mountainous backdrop make Magoebaskloof Pass a tranquil sub-tropical getaway experience for any traveller.

Situated in the Limpopo Province, on the R71, the road between Tzaneen and Polokwane, Avis brings the very best with this scenic route offering the splendour of South Africa.

There is no better way to explore the land of beautiful and contrasting landscapes ranging from bushveld country to majestic mountains and primeval indigenous forests. Magoebaskloof takes travelers to a lofty height of 1400m.

Located half-way up the mountain pass is a gem — the Magoesbaskloof Rest Camp offering travellers top class accommodation in a setting of serene gardens drenched in soft midst further accentuating Magoebaskloof as a destination forged in fantasy.

Magoebaskloof Pass is ideal for every traveller as the tarred road makes it ideal for all vehicles.

However, travellers must exercise caution travelling this scenic route as the constant midst does pose visibility challenges. At 1400m the route produces an average gradient of 1:17 with the steepest parts being at 1:9.
