Beame road trip’s it along the N2 with Chris Garrow

Cape Town to Port Elizabeth

Impromptu travel is the action of travelling without a plan.


There is irony in this because you almost need to have a general idea of what there is to do, otherwise you’ll be travelling blindly and will end up missing hidden gems that could be just around the corner. Let me tell you what I did, places I saw and areas I visited. With this I hope you can head on your journey with knowledge to make some inspired decisions.

I spent a few days travelling up the N2 from Cape Town (CT) to Port Elizabeth (PE) and I can honestly say it was one of the best trips of my life. It may be cliché, but all too often we (I) are so caught up on the destination at the expense of the journey. This trip, however, was different in that the journey was the destination.

Whether you’re an adrenaline junkie, nature lover, family man, a student on a budget or a nomadic traveller, there is something for everyone. The N2 route from CT to PE is filled to the brim with things to do.
