The best road trips within a 3-hour drive of Cape Town.



South AfricaCheapflights asked me about my favourite road trip escape destinations within an easy 3 hours drive of Cape Town.

‘It’s often said that some of Cape Town’s most unique attributes are within a 2-3 hours drive. You literally have everything your travelling heart could desire. Mountains, desert, ocean, vineyards, open roads and small country towns that burst with character and charm.

Our six recommendations, all conveniently found within a short drive of Cape Town, take you beyond the obvious, to these lesser-known spots. Here they are in no particular order – Matjiesfontein, Paternoster, Swellendam, McGregor, Gretyon and the Elgin Valley.’

Read the whole article for tips on why, what to do there, where to stay and the best spots for meals – The best road trips within a 3-hour drive of Cape Town – then get planning.
