The Garden Route


The Garden Route

Journey along South Africa's celebrated Garden Route, officially stretching from Mossel Bay to Port Elizabeth, in reality a superb drive all the way from Cape Town to the game reserves of the Eastern Cape. It boasts the stunning beauty of secluded coves, lagoons, mountains, forests and offers up historic towns, white sandy beaches and amazing wildlife. The region has become one of South Africa's most popular tourist destinations and it’s easy to see why.

The highlights of the Garden Route include the Wilderness Coastal stretch, the whale watchers paradise of Hermanus, Knysna's lagoon and forest based activities, the unspoilt Tsitsikamma National Park and some of South Africas most beautiful beaches at Plettenberg Bay.

Visitors can enjoy the long leisurely drives, stunning scenery and the many hiking trails, fishing and golf activities available in this beautiful and unspoilt part of the country. All of which can be rounded off by stays in boutique hotels, country houses and lodges, oh and the odd log cabin along the way! We feature accommodations in each of these destinations and our sales team will gladly tailor-make an itinerary to suit your needs.
