SA’s top scenic drives

2013-11-07 00:00

DID you know that tourism has its genesis in religion? The earliest pilgrimages were religious. I have just celebrated 21 years as a driver. In that time, I have covered more than two million kilometres. I reckon that makes me about 20 times more religious than Joe Average! But seriously now, this article is a celebration of the joys of travel. And a trip down memory lane to some of the most scenic drives I have covered during this time. But it is also to honour the cars that have taken my family and me to the longitudes and latitudes of this beautiful country: in my case, a Honda Jazz that has just turned 10 years old with 400 000 km on the clock, and a 14-year-old VW Beetle. As hard as they have worked, they too have no doubt enjoyed the scenic drives listed below.
