UNIONDALE POORT

It was a breath-taking experience to drive through the impressive rock formations visible on both sides of the Uniondale Poort [a steep narrow mountain pass] along the R339. First built in 1925, the road through the poort was tarred in 1960 – which ensures a pleasant driving experience.

The scenery is spectacular – especially the patterns created by the folding of the rocks. The sheer mountain slopes rise way above the road, not only making it difficult to see them all at once, but serving to make one marvel at the forces of nature.
