The Garden Route is one of the most scenic stretches of coast in South Africa. A paradise located between the Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma mountains, and the Indian Ocean, it is an area of outstanding natural beauty. With lush green forests and sandy beaches it’s not hard to see why some call it the ‘Garden of Eden’.

The Garden Route is a very safe self-drive destination which starts from the Mossel Bay area and finishes at Storms River in the Tsitsikamma National Park. For those that would prefer a change from driving, there is the Outeniqua Choo Tjoe. The Outeniqua Choo Tjoe is the last remaining passenger steam train in South Africa, and operates between Mossel Bay and George.

Oudtshoorn

Oudtshoorn is surrounded by the Outeniqua Mountains to the south and the Swartberg Mountains to the north, and situated in the centre of the Klein Karoo plains. Oudtshoorn is known as the ostrich capital, with vast numbers of the birds in the region. Four farms offer daily tours: Highgate, Safari, Oudtshoorn and Congo. The Cango Caves are one of the most spectacular attractions in the area. The Cango Caves are 3 limestone caverns covering a great distance, and filled with fascinating stalactites, stalagmites and helictites. It is also a great wine producing region, and forms part of the world’s largest wine route!

Knysna

The town of Knysna is situated between lush indigenous forests and the peaceful shores of the Knysna lagoon, and has some of the most impressive scenery in Africa. You can enjoy the scenery up close by riding on horse back, or cycling through the forests. As well as the impressive scenery, there is an abundance of things to do whilst you are there, from cruising out to the Knysna heads, or playing a round of golf down by the estuary.

Plettenberg Bay

Plettenbery Bay is one of the most beautiful resort areas in South Africa, with mile upon mile of white sandy beaches. The climate stays warm throughout the year, making it a great location to relax and unwind. The Plettenberg Bay is teaming with all kinds of marine life. Of particular note are the large schools of dolphins and whales that are a common site during breeding season. These can be seen on one of the regular whale watching tours that are run from the bay.

With great natural beauty, and plenty of activities for all, the Garden Route is a great destination to visit when you are on holiday to South Africa!
