The Garden Route, one of South Africa's greatest holiday destinations

The Garden Route runs along a scenic stretch of coast between Mossel Bay to the mouth of the Storms River, encompassing areas of sheer natural beauty and an abundance of attractions.

From the dense coastal forests, to the deep river gorges, fresh water lakes, lagoons, quaint towns, and sprawling beaches, the Garden Route definitely lives up to its name as a holiday hotspot. In addition to the beautiful surroundings, the Garden Route offers a variety of exciting outdoor activities to suit all tastes and budgets.

Because of the wide range of experiences and attractions along the Garden Route, together with the excellent road infrastructure, the Garden Route is famed as South Africa's perfect 'self-drive holiday' destination and ideal to explore at your own pace, under your own steam. On the Garden Route, a number of exciting activities are available, from tree-top canopy tours in the Tsitsikamma Forest to visits to the Elephant Sanctuary where you have the opportunity to walk hand-in-trunk with these gentle creatures. You could visit the Birds of Eden bird sanctuary and the Monkeyland Primate Sanctuary, or you may prefer lazing in a seaside restaurant sipping wine and eating oysters.

The Garden Route also offers warm water for a true beach escape, some of the best golf courses in the country and any number of adventure sports.
