One of the most incredible stretches of land in the world, the Garden Route is justifiably internationally recognized for its breathtaking views, incredible mountain scenery, tapestry of beaches, lakes, forests, lagoons and rivers, and amazing bird life.
In short, the Garden Route is a true paradise and unlike any other place on earth.
Stretching from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth along the N2, the region takes in charming towns like Witsand, Riversdale, Stilbaai, Albertinia, Mossel Bay, Great and Little Brak River, George, Wilderness, Sedgefield, Knysna and Plettenberg Bay.
The Garden Route is a botanical treasure trove, and is home to giant yellowwoods and tiny vygies, and a whole range in between.
The beaches are secluded and brilliant to explore, and the variety of activities is astounding; from hiking through the magical Tsitsikamma Forest to soaking up the sun on the glamorous Plettenberg Bay beach.
Knysna has become a true icon in South African tourism, and the nearby towns of Wilderness and George are also well loved tourist destinations.
The region has become an adrenalin junkie’s haven, as it is home to the world’s highest bridge bungee jump, and is popular with kloofers, abseillers, mountain bikers and other extreme sports enthusiasts.
