A thriving farm with sheep, ostriches, and crops, Louvain is located in a region that is rich in history. The Old Voortrekker Pass, which goes through the Outeniqua Mountains, is one of its most popular tourist destinations. The Old Voortrekker Pass was a significant commerce route between the coast and the Langkloof for almost 100 years, beginning in around 1772 and continuing until the late 1800s. These days, it serves as one of Louvain’s 4×4 routes. It fell into neglect once the Montagu Pass and the Seven Passes Road connecting George and Knysna were opened. The only people who still used it were those driving 4×4 vehicles.
