Northern Cape

Wildeperdehoek Pass is a short mountain pass in the Northern Cape. The pass was built between 1867 and 1869 by convicts. The road engineer was Patrick Fletcher.

The pass is less than 5 km long and rises 306 metres when travelling from the west.

The pass provides views over Namaqualand which are particularly beautiful when the spring flowers are in bloom.

Care should be exercised when travelling over this pass as sections of it have been washed away in recent years and these may, or may not, have been repaired.
