Uniondale to Haarlem via De Hoop Road
From Uniondale, go through the Uniondale Poort towards Avontuur.
Turn left onto the dirt road clearly signposted “De Hoop”, with a Mountain Pastures sign.
Stop in at the Boer War memorial on the corner, and please close the gates as this is in private property.
The de Hoop Road goes all the way to the R62 at The Klip Hotel near Haarlem.

On the corner of the De Hoop turnoff on the R339 between the R62 and Uniondale is a memorial to what is rather grandiloquently termed "Gideon Scheepers Last Battle". This skirmish took place on 19th August 1901.

Mountain Pastures Game Lodge lies snuggly in the De Hoop valley between the Kouga and Honniball mountains, far from the madding crowd but convenient for the popular R62 route and only 18 kilometers from Uniondale.
