The Kaaimans Pass between George and Wilderness is one of the most picturesque areas along the Garden Route, which draws many tourists to the area. It is unfortunately also increasingly important for the movement of road freight along this National Route between George and Port Elizabeth. The section of Kaaimans Pass, specifically between the Swart River (km 32,300) and Kaaimans River bridges (km 33,200) includes the infamous horizontal curve at km 32,700 which became known as 'Death Bend'. Frequent accidents involving local inhabitants, foreign tourists and commercial freight vehicles created a media outcry.
