The Garden Route is one of the most popular and beautiful areas of South Africa. Beautiful coastlines, breathtaking mountains and valleys, lush verdant forests, deep blue lakes and lagoons, and great game viewing opportunities too.
The Garden Route has a Mediterranean climate, warm to hot summers and mild often rainy winters. Cape Town marks the beginning (or end!) of the Garden Route. This popular self-drive route along Africa’s southern-most coastline takes in the towns of Swellendam, Oudtshoorn and Plettenberg Bay, with wildlife viewing opportunities at Knysna Lagoon, Wilderness and Tsitsikamma National Parks. A few of our favourite accommodations are here.
