The semi-desert inland area of Route 62 (including the Winelands, Little Karoo and the Langkloof) and the coastal Overberg offer a mosaic of holiday possibilities. From a tourist's point of view, Route 62 provides an alternative means of getting between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth, taking the traveller through towns and scenery very different to that seen on the usual N2 coastal highway. The Overberg, on the other hand, is a compact region of small rural and coastal towns scattered among rolling farmlands and indigenous fynbos, barely an hour's drive from Cape Town. This brand new guide is full of handy and up to date information, covering: Route planning -- how to get there, where to go, what to do and where to eat; Accommodation across price ranges, including self-catering options; Contact details, including e-mail addresses and web sites, of all listed establishments; Detailed maps of each area, including street plans of towns; Nature reserves, touring attractions, and unusual activities and interests; The best places to eat and taste wine.
Steve Moseley & Brent Naude-Moseley have been exploring and photographing the charming coastal towns and rural attractions of Route 62, the Overberg and neighbouring regions for many years. Their travel articles and images appear in local and international publications; and, after years of travel and research, they have launched a unique photo library (www.karooimages.co.za) specialising in the Great Karoo, Little Karoo, Garden Route, Overberg, Kalahari and Namaqualand.
