Car Travel

Most of the towns in this chapter can be found along the N2 highway. The road is in good condition and well signposted. A cautionary note, however: there is a wide shoulder along most of the route, but pull onto it to let faster cars overtake you only when you can see a good few hundred yards ahead. Also, stick to the speed limit, as speed traps are common.

An alternative to the N2 is the less traveled—some say more interesting—inland route, dubbed Route 62, even though some of it is on the R60. From Worcester, in the Breede River valley , you can travel the R60 and R62 to Oudtshoorn.
