Vanrhyns Pass offers majestic views over the Knersvlakte on the descent to Namakwa’s coastal terrace in South Africa’s Northern Cape close to the West Coast

Between 1700-1740, clashes between trekboers and indigenous people led trekboers to move to the top of the Bokveld escarpment. The town Nieuwoudtville came into being in the late 1800s. On the Bokveld escarpment, Nieuwoudtville is known for its unique vegetation, with the biggest variety of indigenous bulbous plants in the world, and the 100m high Nieuwoudtville Falls on the Doring River.

A small town, its warm, sandstone buildings shelter in a well-treed hollow in a flat landscape covered by wheat, heather and proteas. Eight kilometres west of town, Vanrhyns Pass offers majestic views over the Knersvlakte on the descent to Namakwa’s coastal terrace
