We always overnight at Augrabies Falls National Park just outside of Kakamas. A beautiful restcamp/campsite and a stunning Park. Its also a 7 hour drive from Cape Town, so you can do it in one go - just leave early enough in the morning and by 3pm you can be sitting at Echo Corner in Augrabies sipping cold G&T's and listening to Barking Geckos!
I've been known to take a cold beer on a hot day...

It all depends how much time you have to get home.
If you leave Nossob (with baby) and after tent and the rest is packed in the car I would suggest to take it easy, drive slowly back to 2R and overnight in Upington.
The next morning you can either travel the road over Keimoes Calvinia Vanrhynsdorp and arrive in Stellenbosch somewhere in the afternoon or spend another day and night at Augrabies. Drive through Pofadder and Springbok is easly done in one day too.

Augrabies is a bit out of our way. I also think Upington and then Clanwilliam or can rhynsdorp sounds good. Lets say wee leave nossob at 8am then have lunch in TR then overnight in Upington.

Rondeberg (next to the Bulshoek Dam outside Clanwilliam) is a nice resort to overnight.

If you travel via Calvinia, you can also overnight at Groenrivier (Nieuwoudtsville).

Near Keimoes you can use Kalahari Water or Oranjerus near Kanoneiland.

All these are good overnight camping stops en route to KTP.
