This tour takes you through the fynbos trails and into the mountains of the Hottentots Holland Nature Reserve. On this incredible tour we take you to the Old Gantouw Pass Wagon Trail which is known as a world heritage site the original wagon route of the Dutch and British settlers, over the Mountains of Africa, so called in the old days. This route was used for 150 years and following the migratory Eland, one of the oldest and steepest and most treacherous passes in the Western Cape. Even today one can still see the deep gouges in the rocks, made by the brakes of the wagons, as they descended the precipitous pass down through what is now Somerset West from the lush grazing area of the Elgin Valley. The Waterfall Quad Trail tour is a wonderful opportunity to take photographs of the unique Fynbos species. This is a truly unique and wonderful to experience the Western Cape of Southern Africa.
