Stretching along the Southern Cape Coast, the Garden Route is an area of indigenous forests, lakes, sweeping golden beaches and meandering rivers. With its dramatic mountain passes, charming towns and numerous national parks, this is South Africa at its scenic best. From Mossel Bay to Stormsriver, the Garden Route offers an almost endless array of activities and attractions for even the most active traveller. Hike on rugged coastal trails in Tsitsikamma National Park, sea kayak from the beaches of Plettenberg bay or visit Ostrich farms in Oudtshoorn. The delightful towns of Knysna and Plettenberh bay are popular bases from which to explore the region. Further east, towards Port Elizabeth, Jeffrey’s bay has endless beaches and world class surf while St Francis Bay is a relaxed beach resort surrounded by a nature reserve.
