COUNTRY ROADS, TAKE ME HOME

American singer-songwriter John Denver could easily have attributed his lyrics describing the winding country roads of West Virginia, USA, to the N2 highway that stretches and meanders through the towns of the Overberg region.

 

This is your complete Cape country experience comprising eight charming towns in the Overberg region, each with its own distinctive character. Locals and tourists alike can jump in their vehicles and undertake an epic adventure that starts less than an hour from Cape Town, just over Sir Lowry’s Pass, and stretches for 100km along the N2 highway.

Like the iconic Route 66 highway journey in the USA, the Cape Country road trip is the ideal way to experience the best of authentic Western Cape countryside: everything from history to spectacular beauty, generous hospitality, outdoor adventure, award-winning wines, hearty country cuisine, hiking and mountain-bike trails, adventure sports, arts and crafts and much, much more.

Come and discover for yourself why local and international visitors return to the region again and again.
