The Outeniqua Pass is a mountain pass in the Western Cape, South Africa, that carries the N9/N12 national road through the Outeniqua Mountains north of George. It connects George and the Garden Route coastal plain with Oudtshoorn and the Little Karoo. It was constructed between 1943 and 1951, replacing the Montagu Pass as the main route from George to the interior.

  • Totally deserted, nice footpaths, somerimes quite steep. Map is not too great, but I understand the whole thing is being managed by the botanical club. Cheers to them!

  • Driving through the pass we were blown away by grotesque Outeniqua mountain, the fresh air, and gorgeous surroundings. Beautifully kept clean and an absolute must-see for any visitor to the Garden...
