Root ‘n Roll

Root n Roll is the longest route around the Saaveld plantation.  It offers a combination of jeep tracks, plantation roads and some single tracks which some users might find challenging. At the most western side is a short extension to the famous Pepsi Pools. This spot offers a cool swimming hole and small waterfall.
