Many thanks for your advice. I uderstand what you are saying about the one nights but sometimes they seem a bit unavoidable if you want to see many things. Is it really advisable to spend all the time in one of the centres for example 5 nights in Franshoek - surely this would be lots of drivivng backwards and forwards between Cape Town and Franshoek. We also wated to do the Peninsula and Hermanus. Is there any advise on doing these 3 things (cape town, Franshoek, Hermanus) without moving centres?
Also we want to drive from Franshoek to Knysna (along the N62) in one day - is this doable.
Any advice would be appreciated.
