 The first section of the Baviaanskloof Wilderness area is characterised by a steep climb from the indigenous forest below to the open grasslands at the summit. This area is breathtaking wilderness at its best. Going uphill is always easier on a motorcycle and therefore confident, inexperienced riders can manage this section if road surface is dry. Note the absence of guard rails.


This useful sign can be seen at the beginning of the wilderness area.
Note that Bergplaas is 16km not 16m!
