the world's most spectacular roads

Donkey Pass

Donkey Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.394m (7,854ft) above the sea level, located in the Free State province of South Africa. It’s a 4x4 track with concreted strips. It’s one of the highest roads of the country.

The road to the summit, the 6th highest pass in the country, is gravel. To drive this trail, you must have supreme confidence in your vehicle and your driving skills. In inclement weather this road will be dangerous and needless to say, the pass receives regular and deep snowfalls in winter. This one is definitely not for sissies!

During and after a storm the road may be impassable, even with a four-wheel-drive vehicle and can easily get muddy if it rains making it challenging to get through. Whilst the very steep sections (steeper than 1:3 !) are concrete stripped to aid traction, this route is not suitable for normal cars.
