Cape Town to Namibia Route Directory

Cape Town to Namibia Route Directory

General Information

The Cape-Namibia Route is a stretch of road that connects Cape Town in South Africa, to Namibia’s capital, Windhoek, in a distance over 1 600 km.  It consists not only of the N7 from Cape Town straight north into Namibia, but also encompasses highways and byways to the west and east which add their own local flavour.

Cape Town, the "Mother City", is the oldest city in South Africa and has a cultural heritage spanning more than 300 years. It also has the top five national attractions in South Africa that should appear on every visitor’s itinerary. Between Cape Dutch homesteads, traditional dancers with painted faces performing in the streets, the smell of spicy Malay cooking and the taste of a well-made wine, this city will fill your senses.

Pass the West Coast town of Malmesbury - the largest town in the Swartland, agricultural centre, start of the Swartland Wine Route, and Moorreesburg.

Namibia - with the world’s tallest sand dunes at Sossusvlei, vast open spaces and wild coastline - will mesmerize you with its beauty.
