Stick to Vaufi's route
In case of doubt, I would definitely stick to ALL Vaufi's proposals! He was even right about the best
. Thanks a lot for the wise advice, Vaufi.
I'll add a few tips about Western Cape: if you decide follow the coast, at the end of the Garden Route , after Plettenberg Bay , take road R102 indicated as Nature's Valley, which crosses Tsitsikamma National Park , a very dense rain forest, very nice. You'll find a "closed road" sign, no problem, go ahead, it's only due to some rocks fallen, but it's nothing, really.
Swartberg pass (R328) is really beautiful and a very easy dirt road (even me, a non-experienced off roader, could do it with pillion on a V-Strom, so imagine you alone!). And right on the other side, there’s a beautiful canyon right north of De Rust (N12).
Have a great trip,
