National Geographic put together a list of what they reckon is drives one should take. Quoting from them:
Sometimes it’s the journey, sometimes it’s the destination—and sometimes, it’s both. National Geographic Traveler has scoured the globe for the world’s most beautiful, interesting, and off-beat road trips. Dive in to get drive directions, quizzes, photos, and more.
They included drives in Italy, Canada, Hawai, America and much more. However I could not find any from South Africa. Here I immediately think of paces like the Sani Pass. Are there any that you think should be on this list?

As I am still on holiday, my son and I decided to explore some of the Western Cape’s beauty. It was an overcast day and a perfect day for a road trip. We decided to explore the area up to Hermanus. We drove through the Strand and Gordonsbay.
After Gordonsbay, it was onto Rooiels, PringleBay, Bettysbay and Kleinmond. At Kleimond we stopped and grabbed some cooldrinks and strolled through the town. Then it was onto Hermanus, past Arrabella Golf Estate
and Onrus onto Hermanus.
We again stopped in Hermanus and strolled through the town. It was packed and we battled to get parking. This must be one of the restaurants that is the closest I have ever seen to the water edge.
For all you Harley lovers,
This was one of about 15 Harleys and all of them exactly the same.
On the way back from Hermanus we took the N2 and turned off at Grabou. Just before Velliersdorp we took the Franschoek turnoff and got this view of Franschoek.
Now tell me that we do not have some of the most beautyful countryside here in the Cape. This view is just amazing.
