South Africa Cape Town-Johannesburg

I'm planning a 5 week holiday for December, starting off with Cape Town. We only have 7 days/8 nights in South Africa altogether. We leave on the 8th day from Johannesburg.

This will be a self drive holiday.

Can anyone recommend a nice route to drive with stop over places over this 8 day period? We were thinking 2 nights in cape town, 1 night in knysna, 2 nights in port Elizabeth but from here we're not sure where to go next or even if the choices we thought would be a nice, easy drive.

Thanks!

There is so much to do in Cape Town and on the garden route, I would rather extend your stay in the Cape town and Knysna areas than try and drive further. You could add a day or two in the Winelands and in the Overberg region. Port Elizabeth itself is not very exciting but you can look at staying at Plettenberg Bay or St Francis Bay or the Tsitsikamma area. Are you going on safari at some stage on your trip? If not, Addo Elephant Park is a good option.
