Stage 5

A journey which includes Montagu pass is always worthwhile and combined with the new single track sections at Herold Wines makes this a fabulous day – this is true Pioneer spirit and the route between George and Oudtshoorn was used during the first Pioneer, back in 2009.

 

The change in climate and terrain is evident as we enter the arid desert like Karoo; once again we enter Oudtshoorn through Chandelier Game Reserve as we find our way towards Langenhoven Gymnasium, our hosts for the next couple of days.
