Why you should be interested in holiday accommodation along Route 62:
Route 62 is a tourist route that meanders from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth, taking travellers along a scenic alternative to the N2 highway. Route 62 is known for its relaxing countryside atmosphere, rows of vineyards, towering cliffs, and indigenous flora, all of which contribute to some of South Africa’s most diverse regions like Paarl, Wellington, the Breede River Valley, Klein Karoo and Langkloof.
Tucked between the sheltering slopes of valleys along Route 62, are interesting little towns that offer various attractions, farm stalls, restaurants and plenty of things to do for those who enjoy the outdoors. Things to do in the area include visits to wine cellars and game reserves, tribal arts, cultural tours, museums, hiking trails, mountain biking, 4×4 routes, canoeing, horse riding, fishing, and caving.
Route 62 is a popular self-drive holiday due to good road conditions, relaxing countryside accommodation, and the wealth of attractions to encounter along the route.
