Route 62 provides an easy to follow combination of National roadways connecting the Cape Winelands to the Garden Route; and leisurely alternative for visitors heading up North to Johannesburg or the Northern Cape. Going there or coming from; you will find on Route 62 - amongst many other things - a diverse, beautiful semi-arid landscape and the world's biggest bird, fresh air and starlit, wide open skies.

Sometimes seemingly dry and barren the next moment an oasis of green amidst valleys and towering rocky mountains, Route 62 provides a scenic alternative to the faster N2 freeway connecting Cape Town to Mossel Bay - for visitors it is not uncommon taking the N2 freeway from Cape Town and Route 62 going back (or vice versa).

At the North-end of Route 62 visitors travelling to or from Johannesburg traverses Route 62 on the N1 freeway at Prince Albert heading towards Oudtshoorn, Ladismith and Calitzdorp or the Garden Route.

Roughly between 2 - 8-hours drive depending at which point one gets on -or off; connect to Route 62 from the Cape Winelands (Robertson and Worcester) or from the Garden Route (Mossel Bay) and Oudtshoorn. On the N2 freeway heading towards Mossel Bay you will also find lies Suurbraak and Swellendam which is ideal for crossing over to Montagu and Barrydale heading towards Cape Town. Absolutely worth the journey - enjoy the ride!
