Driving over the Outeniqua Pass is a great experience with stunning views along the way. We drove from George to Oudtshorn via the pass and then returned using the Montague Pass.

This pass is true natural splendor. It is a great place to stop for photos and a picnic. Even with the fires of 2018 it is still a sight for sore eyes.

South Africa has so many beautiful places to drive. The Outeniqua Pass is pretty high up the list. It is not that long but oh so beautiful. I would love to come back and hike around the hills.
