Garden Route Attractions
The Garden Route plays host to a number of fantastic highlights and attractions.
The seaside town of Knysna is the Garden Route’s adventure capital and is also the unofficial capital of culinary delights, oysters included! Wedged between coastal forests and a tranquil lagoon, this town offers abundant outdoor adventures in spectacular surroundings, fantastic for families and anyone who wants to unwind.
The nearby town of Plettenberg Bay is the ideal spot for a relaxing beach holiday, walk for miles on its open sandy beaches and attempt a slightly more challenging hike around The Robberg Peninsula. Here you are able to adventure out for some boat-based whale watching, take a microlite flip over the bay, relax in a seaside restaurant and just build sand-castles on the beach.
The Outeniqua Forest belt stretching along the length of the Garden Route also holds a number of incredible attractions. Here you can zip from tree to tree on a zipline adventure, hike for hours without seeing another soul, mountain bike until your heart's content, and visit the animal sanctuaries of Monkey Land and bird's of Eden.
The Garden Route also combines excellently with an Eastern Cape safari and easy flight schedules allow you to drive the Garden Route in one direction and return by air in the other.
