Things to do on the Swartberg Circle Route

De Rust Activities

De Rust is best known for the beautiful Meiringspoort pass — the gateway that connects the Great Karoo & Klein Karoo. Leisurely winding its way through towering rock formations, the pass follows a natural gorge along the Groot River, cutting its way through the magnificent Swartberg Mountain range. Plenty of scenic spots give you the chance to stop and marvel at the extraordinary beauty of the poort and its towering rock walls, while a short hike up to the waterfall gives one a bird’s-eye view of the incredible scenery.
