Vlaknek Pass is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.853m (6,079ft) above the sea level, located in the Free State, in South Africa. The road has moderate gradients and no corners.
This track can get very muddy and slippery after rain making it challenging to get through. During and after a storm the road may be impassable, even with a four-wheel-drive vehicle. This is a maintained road where a high clearance 2WD vehicle is able to travel safely at low speeds on long dry straight-of-ways, without losing control due to wash boarding, ruts, or dips. The only time you need worry about driving here would be in heavy rain or snow conditions, as the summit is at 1.853m ASL and it does snow here in winter, when temperatures are regularly far below 0C.
