The Ultimate South Africa Road Trip Itinerary

South Africa is a country with a lot to offer. From the bustling city of Johannesburg to the stunning landscapes of the Garden Route, there’s something for everyone. And what better way to see it all than on a road trip?

There are many different ways to do a road trip holiday in South Africa, but we’ve put together what we think is the ultimate itinerary. This road trip will take you from Johannesburg to Cape Town, via some of the most beautiful and diverse scenery in the country.

The first stop on your journey should be Kruger National Park. This world-renowned game reserve is home to an incredible variety of wildlife, including lions, elephants and rhinos. You’ll need at least a few days here to really explore and enjoy all that Kruger has to offer. We find that hiring a 4×4 for this trip would provide you with the most value for money on your holiday.

After Kruger, it’s time to head to the Drakensberg Mountains. These majestic mountains offer breathtaking views, as well as plenty of opportunities for hiking and other outdoor activities. Be sure to spend a day or two here before moving on.

Next up is Durban, South Africa’s third largest city. Durban is known for its beautiful beaches, so be sure to spend some time relaxing on the sand before exploring the rest of what this vibrant city has to offer. From Durban, it’s a short drive down the coast to Port Elizabeth.

Port Elizabeth is the perfect place to stop and catch your breath after all the excitement of Johannesburg and Durban. This quiet seaside town is known for its friendly locals and laid-back atmosphere. Spend a few days here exploring the beaches and maybe even taking a surf lesson or two!

From Port Elizabeth, it’s time to head down the Garden Route. This scenic stretch of coastline is home to some of South Africa’s most beautiful scenery. Stop in at Mossel Bay, Wilderness and Knysna along the way – you won’t be disappointed!

Finally, you’ll arrive in Cape Town, arguably one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Be sure to spend plenty of time here exploring everything this unique city has to offer, from Table Mountain to Robben Island. And of course, no visit to Cape Town would be complete without enjoying some of the local wine!

This is just one possible itinerary for a road trip through South Africa – there are endless possibilities depending on your interests and how much time you have available. However you choose to do it, a road trip through this amazing country is an experience you’ll never forget.
