Afrikaans name: Bothaspas
Although Botha's Pass is not one of the most spectacular, or challenging, passes in South Africa it does offer good views over the farmlands below.
There are a handful of shops at the bottom of the pass.
Bothas Pass saw some action in the Anglo-Boer war. It was a key route for the Birtish forces to get access into the Free State, but the Boer commandos had kept it under their control for some time. The British, under General Buller, eventually managed to capture it on the 8th June 1900.
