Route 62 Info

Welcome to the Route 62 Information Directory

Within this Directory you will find information on the different advertisers for accommodation, activities, restaurants, as well as event listings and businesses located along the Route 62

South Africa’s Route 62, or R62, has been likened to America’s Route 66, which connects Chicago and Los Angeles.  Although the R62 officially starts at Montagu, the tourism industry likes it to begin a little earlier at Robertson.  

Route 62 is a relaxing and visually stimulating way of travelling from city to city.  The route follows the majestic Langeberg mountain range to the foothills of the Swartberg, as travellers immerse themselves in an ever changing landscape of open spaces, rivers, orchards and beautiful passes.

Road conditions are good on route and through enthusiastic tourism marketing there are a wonderful array of attractions, eating establishments and accommodation options along the way.

This scenic route passes through farming towns such as Calitzdorp, Ladismith and the fruit growing and wine producing towns of Barrydale, Ashton, Bonnievale and the mystical McGregor.

Activities along Route 62

Choose between visiting the many excellent wineries, museums or the world-famous Cango Caves in Oudtshoorn.  For those that prefer their adrenalin to be ignited there are fantastic 4x4 routes, river rafting, hiking trails and rock climbing activities.

Whether it is rafting the Breede River, river cruising at Viljoensdrift or walking Montagu’s architectural route, there is never a dull moment.  Take the time to stop at Barrydale’s farm stalls, have a beer at Ronnies Sex Shop and experience Meerkat Magic in Oudtshoorn.

Being the longest wine route in the world, the R62 is a scenic meander through farming communities, vineyards and orchards, and is one of South Africa’s favourite tourism routes. 

See the activities directory for all the listed advertisers each offering something for everyone.
