Garden Route Holidays
A journey along the Garden Route is a wonderful way to explore the spectacular
beauty of the south-eastern coastline of South Africa. A world of soaring mountain
ranges, secluded bays, indigenous forests and pristine beaches can be explored by
simply following the N2 from Cape Town to Storms River.
The town of Mossel Bay is the first stop on a trip along the Garden Route. While it
doesn’t match the beauty of some of the destinations further down the N2, this
sleepy coastal town does feature a beautiful beach and some of the best value
Garden Route accommodation you’re likely to find during your travels.
The coastal village of Wilderness will provide a first
taste of the magical blend of mountains and
indigenous forests that give this region its unique
character. You can book accommodation in a
quaint bed & breakfast or even hole up in a rustic
log cabin in the Wilderness Nature Reserve.
George is the largest town on the Garden Route, and provides a variety of Garden
Route accommodation options to suit all tastes and budgets. The town lies at the
base of the Outeniqua Mountains and is located in close proximity to a number of
local seaside villages, including Victoria Bay and Buffels Bay.
Knysna is perhaps South Africa’s best loved fishing village. The town is well known
for its annual oyster festival, when it comes alive with a carnival atmosphere and
numerous opportunities to sample the excellent local seafood. The town also offers
access to the famous Knysna forest and the clear waters of the Knysna lagoon.
Plettenberg Bay is a popular coastal playground
renowned for its superb beaches. The town is
also the home of Birds of Eden, the world’s
largest free-flight aviary, and a destination no
bird-watcher would want to miss out on.
