Located in South Africa :: Northern Cape (Great Karoo)
Category: Scenic Routes :: Mountain Pass

If you didn't know it had a name, this little poort (wisely listed in the Afrikaans diminutive, so as not to be taken seriously) would be gone in the blink of an eye and you would be none the wiser. Some maps and references also call this poort 'Die Poort se Nek'. This is about as obscure as any pass can get. It lies on a remote gravel road (the P2259) about 40 km due east of Sutherland. It is of some significance in that together with its sister poort (Bloupoort) a few kilometres to the west, these two little poorts are important landmarks on your journey to the fabulous Karelskraal Pass a little further on.

“Die Poort se Nek Pass w239752 lies on the gravel P2259, 40 Km East of Sutherland in the Northern Cape Province of S Africa. The gravel roads are in good condition, but why this should be named “a Pass” remains a mystery. It is just another bit of Mickey Mouse flat road like thousands of other kilometres in the Karoo. We cancelled our further trip to Karelskraal Pass and Rammelkop Pass as we were wasting fuel on this exercise in futility.” - Chris Smit, 2014/10/25
