If you have only a day or two in Cape Town on your South African holiday, this self-drive route around the Cape to Cape Point covers the greatest hits of the Mother City. 

A self-drive route from Cape Town to Cape Point allows visitors the opportunity to see the amazing attractions the area has to offer, and adventurers will be in for a treat with fun outdoor activities. Foodies and wine lovers will not be let down either, as there are plenty of gourmet restaurants, charming coffee shops and sophisticated wine estates to visit.

As you travel along the Cape Coast, you’ll be surrounded by both beach and mountain, which makes for exceptional views that are ideal for a memorable image or two with your loved ones. 

No matter the season, Cape Town is a welcoming city all year round. The beaches are packed in summer's heat, tempered by blustery days thanks to the Cape's notorious Southeaster. Winter has become known as the secret season, when rainy days punctuate halcyon spells of sunny weather. The city does, however, have a reputation for dishing up four seasons all, so when you plan your Cape Town holiday, make sure you pack for all weather.

Whether you embark on a self-drive route with friends, family or as a solo traveller, a tour around the Cape to Cape Point is an absolute must - you will get to see both popular tourist sites and hidden gems off the beaten track.
