High on the must-see lists of most visitors to South Africa is the Garden Route, and with good reason: you can’t help but be seduced by the glorious natural beauty. The distance from Mossel Bay in the west to Storms River in the east is just over 200km, yet the range of mountains and coastlines, vegetation, wildlife and outdoor activities is remarkable. There are so many activities here and places to see and visit, the list is long, so we suggest a few days where you can take a road trip and experience all these exciting towns along the way. Here you can bungee jump off the highest bridge or eat fresh oysters and sip on Champagne overlooking the Knysna heads.
The coast is dotted with excellent beaches, while inland you’ll find picturesque lagoons and lakes, rolling hills and eventually the mountains of the Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma ranges that divide the verdant Garden Route from the arid Little Karoo.
