One of the World's great drives
The Garden Route is the picturesque stretch of coastline between Mossel Bay and Nature’s Valley, aptly named for its lush greenery and the vast Tsitsikamma Forest.
The coastal route includes the towns of George, Wilderness, Sedgefield, Knysna, Plettenberg Bay and Nature’s Valley – each with their own charm and attractions. You can expect endless revealing bird-filled forests, nature reserves, beaches and surf pounded cliffs.
Relaxing, active, romantic or family fun – the Garden Route offers it all. Hiking, walking and swimming are plentiful, or simply relax and take in the scenery.
The Outeniqua Choo Choo is a famous train that chugs between George and Knysna offering spectacular views.
Dine on fresh seafood and oysters and take a boat trip on the lagoon in Knysna, or soak up the sun on long stretches of white sandy beaches in Plettenberg Bay.
