Eastern Cape Highlands Accommodation
NB. Fuel, both petrol and diesel can be unobtainable in Rhodes. Visitors are advised to fill up their vehicles' fuel tanks before embarking on the last leg to Rhodes.
Also, when traversing the Naudesnek Pass (and any other high-lying areas) always park facing into the wind. Gusts of wind have been known to rip doors out of travellers hands resulting in serious damage to the door and vehicle.
Beware of the Pitseng Pass route from the Mt Fletcher/Maclear road, a "short-cut" to Elands Heights or Naudesnek. If you want to traverse Naudesnek Pass, the recommended route is via Maclear.
Lastly, the R396 from Barkly Pass/Mountain shadows Hotel is in a shocking state. the recommended route to Rhodes is via Barkly East.
Highlands Info administers a fine selection of comfortable affordable self-catering accommodation venues in and around Rhodes in the Eastern Cape Highlands.
Holiday homes, used from time to time by the owners, are equipped with all of the basic necessities such as bedding, cutlery, crockery, kitchen utensils and equipment. Houses with Eskom power have electric blankets to ward off the winter chill. Most guest accommodation options are equipped with gas geysers to cope with power outages and/or failures.
The Virtual Tour will give you a preview as to what can be expected with the accommodation venues.
More importantly, Rhodes is not for sissies. All four seasons can be expected in one day and if snow blows your hair back, don't complain about the cold!
