KwaZulu-Natal

Botha's Pass is on the R34 between Newcastle and Memel. The pass takes you from a height of 1569 m to 1805 m at the top. It is about 5 km in length.

The pass is in the KwaZulu-Natal province but the border with the Free State is at the top of the pass.

Although Botha's Pass is not one of the most spectacular, or challenging, passes in South Africa it does offer good views over the farmlands below.

There are a handful of shops at the bottom of the pass.
