Franschhoek to Oudtschoorn driving


Can anyone give me idea on the best way to drive from Franschhoek to oudtschoorn in one day. I ve read about various options but still not sure. I'd like to maximise scenary but dont wont to spend the whole day of our honey moon in the car. Also any ideas of timings for both.

Option 1: Franschhoek, Villiersdorp, Swellendam, Barrydale, Ladismith, Calitzdorp, Oudtschorn.

Option 2: Franschhoek, Villiersdorp, Worcester, Robertson, Montegue, Barrydale, Ladismith, Calitzdorp, Oudtschoorn.

Yes the R62 route to Knysna is doable in one day and is much more scenic than the N2

Route 2.

The Country Kitcen at Mont Rochelle is a very relaxed lunch venue. Super food and good value for money. In Montagu Templetons at the Four Oaks guest house is very nice, Mr Templeton is on of the best chefs in the country. If you have time stay one night a the Nature Reserve Sanbona. It is just beautiful and where else in the world can you see white lions in the wild. The best lamb dishes are served at Clarke at the Karoo in Barrydale.
