Imagine the best beaches in the world, and combine this with the Scottish Highlands (on a sunny day), throw in a smattering of French Riviera chic and finish up with some of Africa's most iconic wildlife and you have South Africa’s Garden Route. Stretching almost 300 kilometres from Mossel Bay in the west to Plett in the east, the lush coastline is a compilation of the country’s highlights. ...
And it doesn’t end with the scenery. Activities are as varied as the lush topography; explore hiking trails in Wilderness, whizz through the forest canopy in Tsitsikamma, spot lions in Gondwana and drink cocktails in Plett… And that’s just the beginning. Mix and match lodges to create a holiday that suits your style and budget.
With so much to do and see, planning a Garden Route holiday can be daunting, but our safari experts will help you create and refine your trip until you’re completely happy.
