Our Portfolio of Route 62 accommodation

Route 62 runs through the semi-arid Klein Karoo and the result is a hot dry climate in summer and cold nights in winter. However rainfall in places like Montagu is very low, annually, which means you can plan hikes or other outdoor activities year-round.

Wherever your Klein Karoo and Route 62 travels take you, Portfolio can guide you to the best luxury accommodation – in B&Bs, farm stays, guest houses and country homes.
