Naude's Neck is one of the premier wild flower viewing sites in the Southern Drakensberg. The road between Maclear and Rhodes in the Eastern Cape crests the high mountain range at an altitude of 2500m, the highest road pass in the Republic of South Africa, giving access to the extremely rich alpine flora that occurs on this range.
