In this week’s episode of the South African road trips 5 week series, we look at Cape Town to Lambert’s Bay week 3 #Roadtripping
Be sure to come past Randburg Midas for all your camping, fishing and outdoor lifestyle needs.
South Africa is perfect for jumping in the car and hitting the tarmac. It’s easy to navigate, with tempting freeways leading out of the cities, and it packs a bulging lunch box of scenery – from snowy mountains to sandy beaches. With African villages and picturesque settler towns for resting your steed, you’ll never tire of the road on these trips.
Go west (Cape Town to Lambert’s Bay, 240km/150mi)
From Cape Town, head north along the west coast, which remains a local secret despite appealing spots such as Paternoster (www.paternoster.co.za). This whitewashed fishing village, on a peninsula north of Langebaan Lagoon (www.langebaaninfo.co.za), has long been known for its kreef (crayfish). In recent years, new restaurants and galleries have added a dollop of sophistication to the coastal hideaway.
