Any destination on the Cape Garden Route is within easy reach from Cape Town - 2 to 6-hours drive - from Western Cape to Eastern Cape. Allow enough time for stop-over's which you'll definitely want to do (plenty of) .. Connect to the Cape Garden Route from the Eastern Cape (Port Elizabeth), the Cape Whale Coast (Hermanus) or Route 62 (Oudtshoorn).
