The road to Gamkaskloof takes off 2,7 km on the Prince Albert side of the Swartberg Pass summit. On the map the crow-flight distance to the river measures 40 km but the road distance is about 57 km. It is of course a 'slow' road, not only because of the surface and the geometries (there are some delightfully testing pass sections) but because you will want to stop to look at the rugged scenery and to feel the stillness, and probably to wander off into the veld for a while. At any rate, you will if you are an egte padmaker!
