Calitzdorp


Cape Route 62 traverses the dramatic open spaces of the Karoo and the sharp, prolific mountains that devide the arid interior from moist coastal regions. Also called the Inland Route East, this is the road less travelled between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth and was the original link between these two towns before the N2 highway was built in 1959.

Although the route does visit a few major centres, it’s the quaint towns and friendly villages that offer a truly unique South African rural encounter. Now known as the World’s Longest Wine Route, it weaves a tranquil path through wine regions and some of the most spectacular agricultural fields, dotted with an abundance of grapes, deciduous fruit and olives, all set amidst miles of natural expanse.
