The Owl Route is a luxurious escape into the heart of the Karoo. It consists of a 3-day mountain bike experience limited to 80 riders. At The Owl Route, riders can indulge in an all-inclusive riding and culinary experience in the quaint village of Nieu Bethesda. The rolling mountains of the Sneeuberge will remain the backdrop of the 3-day experience. You will be swooped back to the welcoming arms of Nieu Bethesda and its hand-built, fully functioning water furrows and historic sites.

The unspoilt village of Nieu Bethesda lies tucked in a scenic valley in the foothills of the Sneeuberg Mountains, 50km north of Graaff-Reinet.

Nieu Bethesda is accessed by two roads from the N9. The first is a fully tarred road 27km north of Graaff-Reinet at Wellwood Farm.
The other is a good gravel road 60km south of Middleburg, at Bethesda Road railway siding.
Two longer alternative routes pass some interesting farms but their condition is variable.
