South Africa's Garden Route along the southen coastline is undoubtably one of the most scenically beautiful areas of the country and within this region, the winding, narrow, sometimes gravel, sometimes paved, Seven Passes Road takes beauty to another level.
The road, built between 1867 and 1882 under the supervision of Thomas Bain, connects Knysna in the east with George in the west. It's not the fastest way to travel between the two towns (the N2 takes care of that), and traversing 7 passes along the 75km takes time. And without a doubt, you are going to want to stop to shoot a picture or two.
