Travelling from Gauteng (Alberton) to Cape Town by car, we find Beaufort West a convenient destination to end the first day of road travelling. One completes about two-thirds of the road on the first day. This allows enough time to complete the road trip at a slower speed from say Worcester to Cape Town. One can stop at farm stalls and purchase wine and other farm products. Also one can prevent collecting speed fines with all the cameras and cops doing speed monitoring from say Hex River Valley onward!
