This is a popular stopover between the Klein Karoo in the north and the Garden Route. Travellers seeking something off the national road coming from the east, usually head to Herbertsdale and Van Wyksdorp via the Cloete’s Pass, then to Ladismith and finally over Garcia Pass to Riversdale. From Dibiki you can continue on with the back road to Heidelberg, or via Gysmanshoek Pass back to Route 62.
Riversdale’s ideal location gives it the advantage of being within a few kilometres of seaside towns such as Still Bay and Witsand and is perhaps best known for her abundance of indigenous fynbos. During the winter months, the mountains and surrounding areas are an array of rainbow floral displays, which have earned the town recognition as the Floral Paradise of the Garden Route.
