Garden Route

Welcome to the Garden Route

High on the ‘must-see’ list of most visitors to South Africa is the Garden Route and with good reason: you can’t help but be seduced by its glorious natural beauty. It stretches from Mossel Bay in the Western Cape to the Storms River which is crossed along the N2 coastal highway over the Paul Sauer Bridge in the extreme western reach of the neighbouring Eastern Cape. The coast is dotted with excellent beaches, while inland you’ll find picturesque lagoons and lakes, rolling hills and eventually the mountains of the Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma ranges that divide the verdant Garden Route from the arid Little Karoo. The Garden Route is an excellent all year round destination with an average of 300 days of sunshine per year.

Its indigenous forests, home to elusive forest elephants and 700-year-old yellowwoods, are perfect for hiking and walking trails, and the idyllic coastal towns boast world-class golf courses. If that’s not enough, it also possesses the world’s highest commercial bungee jump. Monkeyland and Birds of Eden located Plettenberg Bay are just some of the many highlights.
