Die Hel
 

Province: Western Cape

Destination: Die Hel

The prospect of driving into a World Heritage site has never been so appealing, with an Avis vehicle.

Commonly known as ‘Die Hel’, Gamkaskloof is a hidden valley, tucked away deep in the Swartberg Mountains – a secluded Paradise Lost. This journey of beauty and discovery opens the doors into the history of a small community of farmers whose original farm cottages now offer rustic accommodation far from the madding crowd in the city.

In your Avis vehicle of choice, visit the charming hamlet of Prince Albert, which is half a day away, offering art galleries, restaurants – and even an art deco bioscope. Travel south over the magnificent Swartberg Pass, and Oudtshoorn’s Kango Caves and finally the Garden Route all begging to be explored. Engage low gear and let the gearbox slow you down on the descent. After all, this is why you left the city hustle and bustle behind!
