Fruit Route, Western Cape, South Africa.

Surprises on Route 62, which links Cape Town with Port Elizabeth. It passes through farming towns such as Calitzdorp, Ladismith, Amalienstein and Zoar, and the fruit-growing and wine-producing towns of Barrydale, Montagu, Ashton, Bonnievale, Robertson, McGregor, Worcester, Ceres, Wolesley and Tulbagh. It was replaced by the N2 national highway, which caused a severe decrease in traffic. This greatly affected the smaller towns along the route whose survival depended on tourism. However, after hibernation for 40 years, Route 62 is now being revived. It offers visitors a sense of adventure, whether in the physical sense or simply a kaleidoscope of scenic experiences. Few places in the world are as beautiful as Route 62. AERoute
