Take a photo tour of Route 62, South Africa

On a recent trip to South Africa, we travelled one of South Africa’s most scenic drives – Route 62.

While based in Knysna we planned to spend a few days in Cape Town. The direct route from Knysna to Cape Town is just over 5 hours driving time, or 480kms, on the N2 – the coastal road. However we love to travel inland – along Route 62 – a much more scenic trip with majestic mountains, country landscapes and charming towns along the way.
