About the road trip.
There's something truly memorable about road trips - a coming together of multiple experiences, moments and people. From the comfort of the all-new BMW X3, presenters from 947, 702, CapeTalk and Kfm 94.5 made new memories, as they embarked on a road trip to the power of X, with teams driving from Johannesburg to Cape Town and others driving from Cape Town to Johannesburg. As the urban jungle gave way to a thousand shades of grass, mountain, earth and sky, it became the journey of a thousand memories. In their discovery of the sheer multitude of beyond beautiful landscapes, never-seen-before places and warm, welcoming people, they found a new love for South Africa.
