Taking its name from the endless landscapes of lush, green vegetation, the Garden Route offers the best of the Cape’s natural splendour. With the Indian Ocean, forests, nature reserves, rivers and many other beautiful habitats to explore, the Garden Route has plenty of sights to see and activities to experience. The many fascinating small towns and villages that lie along the coast are not be missed. Photographic opportunities are abound too; with some of the most awe-inspiring landscapes to be found in Nature’s Valley, the Cango Caves and the elephant park. The route from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth will have you cut across the Western Cape all the way to the beginning of the Eastern Cape, across the desert region of the Karoo, the vast river panes and green valleys of the Knysna and Tsitsikamma region, to the quaint sea side town and harbour villages where time seems to stop. This trip is organized in a way that allows you to take full advantage of the Garden Route without spending too much on accommodation. The comfortable Bed & Breakfasts along the way will leave you well rested and ready to tackle another exciting day along the Garden Route.
