The Garden Route is a 200km stretch along an exceptionally beautiful coastline. Tranquillity, fresh air and breathtaking scenery create the perfect setting for one of the most romantic getaways in South Africa.

Possible Garden Route safari travel excursions and activities include the Tsitsikamma National Park, Monkeyland Primate Sanctuary, Cango Caves, Outeniqua Choo-Choo, the Lakes Area National Park, Robberg Nature Reserve and Nature’s Valley.

Explore the Garden Route and some of its better known towns. These include George, Plettenberg Bay, Witsand, Sedgefield, The Wilderness and the seaside town of Knysna.

The seaside village of Knysna is picturesquely situated on the banks of a lagoon. Knysna and the area surrounding it has been an inspiration to many, including Dalene Matthee who wrote the award-winning book “Circles in a Forest”. Knysna is home to South Africa’s only forest elephant, the beautiful Knysna Loerie, forest birds and an abundance of sea life including over 200 species of fish, dolphins and whales.
