Five awesome places to visit on your next road trip to the Cape Province

The thrill of the journey is the driving force behind road trips

The scenery in the Cape Province is drenched in natural beauty. As a result, rather than being a means to an end, our roads have become destinations in their own right. 

These are the top five places that should be on your road trip bucket list to visit on your next road trip to the Cape Province, according to motus.cars.

  1. The West Coast

Although it may not be the most obvious route for visitors, the West Coast offers a wonderful selection of coastal towns like Yzerfontein, Langebaan, and Paternoster, as well as some inland gems like Darling. The West Coast is an excellent destination for water sports, outdoor activities, pristine beaches, and seasonal wildflowers.

  1. The Garden Route

The Garden Route is one of South Africa's most lush and beautiful areas. It has a plethora of charming towns and forest retreats, including Mossel Bay, Knysna, and Plettenberg Bay, and is blessed with majestic scenery, green forests, and warmer beaches along the Indian Ocean coast.

  1. Cape Peninsula

There aren't many trips around the world that can compare to driving around the Cape Peninsula. Pay a visit to the world-famous Cape Point in addition to other well-known destinations, beaches, and towns along the route. Kalk Bay, Llandudno, Chapman's Peak Drive, and Simon's Town and are just a few examples.

  1. The Klein Karoo

Although the Klein Karoo is not a long route, it is worth exploring, especially since it connects with the famous Route 62, the world's longest wine route. Also unique to this part of the Western Cape are its stark, barren landscapes, which contrast with more vibrant towns.

  1. The Overberg

A trip through the Overberg reveals a plethora of coastal and inland towns to discover. Expect rolling mountain ranges, an incredible coastline, and some of the best land-based whale-watching in the world. 

Whether you take Clarence Drive and head along the R44, or head briefly inland, tailing around the Botrivier Lagoon before re-joining the R43, the Overberg is a must-see.
