A South Africa road trip from Cape Town along the Klein Karoo: trip of a lifetime for a 50th birthday

Cape Town to Oudtshoorn

After leaving Cape Town we make an overnight stop in Stellenbosch, an hour away; a pretty university town of tree-lined streets and pavement culture. It’s a different feel, the malevolent undercurrent gone.

From there, we transit to Oudtshoorn, 400km from Cape Town. The changing landscapes make the six-hour drive feel as if we’re passing through what feels like a plethora of countries from Swiss Alps to the Australian Outback. The scenery is spectacular and the driving easy.
