Long Description:
The Outeniqua Pass was constructed between 1943 and 1951, replacing the Montagu Pass as the main route from George to the interior. It was reconstructed and upgraded in 1997 and completed in 2006.

The Outeniqua Pass, instead of taking you through the mountains will take you over the mountains with at least 3 magnificent viewpoints where one can see over George all the way to the Indian Ocean. It is a spectacular mountain pass and a great engineering feat. The highest point of 799m is reached 14km from George.
