We spent about three weeks driving in South Africa in February and April (we spent most of March in Namibia and Botswana) of 2018. Starting our Southern Africa road trip in Johannesburg, we drove beside the northern border with Lesotho to Bloemfontein, down south to the coast, along the garden route to Cape Town, north into Namibia, and then finally south from Botswana to Pretoria. Here is what it is like driving in South Africa.
