Don't miss it!

The R62 is a great road to drive. Round every corner is another quirky sign advertising somewhere to eat or drink. Worth stopping to take photos! And the scenery is good too.

The Little or Klein Karoo provides a wonderful contrast to the coast, with wonderful mountain backdrops, farmland and vineyards.

For the uninitiated the best route across the Cape is perhaps not so much the garden route as the Klein Karoo. We were fortunate in that we went to PE via the Garden Route then following local advice bordering on insistence - lol - we returned to Cape Town via the Klein Karoo and what a beautiful trip it was...

The Route 62 is a must and Prince Albert is a lovely town with friendly community and lovely food at Karoo Kombuis for dinner. The breakfast at Country Store is excellent. The Waterfall in Meiringspoort is a must between the historic Mountain range of the Swartberg. At Barrydale, just at end of town is delicious belgium milkshakes.

We came back via Route 62 on our trip along the Garden Route, minimal traffic, great roads and scenery, great little places to stop and have a drink and a meal. Slower pace than the N2 but really enjoyable miles fly by.

We travelled along a section of the R62 and granted, it was in the middle of the week before the holiday rush started, but what a pleasant drive it was! Although there were road works, the road between Ashton and Montagu actually closed for 2 hours for traffic in either direction while blasting occurs (Tuesday and Thursday, 11.00 to 13.00),... More

This road is just so beautiful. The scenery is stunning, the people you meet on the way are so friendly .. it's remote but safe and still not touristy like the garden route. Make sure you take lots of water in the car as there aren't many places to stop and have a drink.

The R60/R62 roads from Robertson through to Oudtshoorn are the gateways to a motorcyclists nirvana. Hi speed national roads, scenic semi desert landscapes and access to 7 utterly fantastic mountain passes. I have done them all many times and if I was asked I would tell a visiting biker to take a week and go for a blast either from... More

We drove the full route from George via Oudtshoorn, through to Worcester. From Oudtshoorn, you'll enjoy breathtaking views as well as passing through many small towns, with not much traffic. It's a good 2 hours from Oudtshoorn through to Montague, passing through larger towns such as Ladismith and Barrydale. There's also many road stalls, so do budget some extra time... More
