The best way to get from the bottom of South Africa to the middle is to travel the scenic Cape Route 62. It’s a route that’s meant to be taken at your leisure. Spontaneous breaks to explore quaint towns are what make the trip so memorable. Falling in love with the people you meet along the way is just a bonus.
Cape Route 62 is as famous in South Africa as the iconic Route 66 in the United States. The highway is well-maintained and dotted with quaint lay-byes for picnics and ‘pit stops’. There’s always somewhere safe for tourists to pull over for another photo opportunity.
Cape Route 62 starts in the low-lying areas of the Cape wine farms and winds its way towards the rugged mountain pass that takes you to the Klein Karoo. Then it’s a sweeping downhill journey to the wild east coast. Just when you think the scenery couldn’t be more spectacular, you’ll enter a new and equally beautiful region.
