Garden Route Holidays

The Garden Route is one of the "must visit" destinations when travelling to South Africa.

This beautiful stretch of the south-eastern coast gets its name from the diverse vegetation and many lagoons dotted on the coast.

Described as one of the 'best drives in the world', you'll see stunning views and be left with a sense of exhilaration. It starts at Mossel Bay in the west to Port Elizabeth in the east; the Garden Route is actually a great drive all the way from Cape Town to the 'Big Five' game reserves in the Eastern Cape.

Historic sleepy towns, desert, beautiful fauna and wildlife make a trip to the Garden Route a truly diverse holiday destination. You can stop off at many of the towns and take in the local culture or find a spot at one of the many small beaches and take in the sunshine.

You can also experience much of the garden route by train as well which as you can imagine is one of the most relaxing ways to enjoy this fantastic landscape.

Some of the best attractions include:

• The unbelievable canopy tour in the Tsitsikamma Forest, where you can ride on cables amongst the treetops
• Visit Shamwari and Kariega (malaria-free) game reserves for close encounters with the 'Big Five'
• Visit the Cango Caves - The spectacular limestone formations are a joy to behold.
• Take a voyage on a cruise and sip Champagne from Mossel Bay to Seal Island
• Take a trip to the childhood home of the legendary Nelson Mandela
• Stoll down the promenade at Port Elizabeth and get sun soaked on the impressive wide open beach

A holiday in the Garden Route is a must for anyone who's looking to relax whilst taking in the many exceptional sites on offer on this tour.
