Long Tom Pass
One of Mpumalanga’s most famous driving roads, the R37 joins Lydenburg and Sabie and the summit of the pass lies at an altitude of 2 150m. It’s a slice of handling heaven with around 50km of twists and turns, but can be quite hairy on the descents with some hard braking required into tight turns. But you can take a break and sightsee the forest-carpeted lowveld below or the Long Tom war cannon the pass is named after.
