Route 62 meanders amid winding passes, imposing mountains, winelands, through tunnels, past fruit-bearing farmland and verdant forest. This picturesque journey begins in Cape Town and winds its way up to Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape, providing a culturally-rich and scenically-satisfying alternative to the national road running between the two.
The unassuming towns found on the way are notoriously misleading. More often than not, travellers lament not taking a little more time to truly enjoy all that the area has to offer. The Winelands extend from Wellington to the Klein Karoo, making it one of the longest wine routes in the world. The Route 62 Brandy Route is another must-see as are the white lions at Sanbona Wildlife Reserve. Oudtshoorn - found further along the Klein Karoo - is home to a number of farms offering ostrich-rides.
Striking mountain ranges scattered among fruit farms and vineyards hide numerous hiking and mountain climbing trails as well as 4x4 tracks and rivers that are ideal for canoeing and fishing. For those with a daredevil streak, how about a bird's-eye view of the area while skydiving towards the earth? Whatever your interest, one thing is guaranteed – limitless activities and endless fun abound on Route 62.
