Garden Route Guideline
Since we’re starting in Port Elizabeth, it’s best to make the most of it by exploring some of its fascinating attractions such as Addo Elephant National Park. Here you can spend a few days on safari trips and explore the world’s most densely populated land of elephants. Be sure to book your accommodation at Woodall Country House where you’ll be pleased by their very own safari rides, spa and luxury rooms.
Continue your journey to the Tsitsikamma National Park where you’ll get to appreciate the majestic view of water stretching over the rocky coastline defined by massive cliffs, beautiful beaches and indigenous forests.
Your next stop should be Knysna where you wouldn’t want to miss the opportunity to see the Knysna Heads. This spectacular attraction is known to astound visitors for its giant sea cliffs that guard the entrance of a stunning lagoon from the rushing sea.
Then, travel to experience the amazing scenery at the Wilderness National Park, which is well known for its combination of flowing rivers, lakes, beaches, forest and monumental mountains.
Thereafter, make your way through the Outeniqua Mountains to the Little Karoo where you can explore the astonishing Cango Caves. After exploring the caves, head over to the Ostrich Farm in Oudtshoorn, popular for ostrich racing. While you’re at it, be sure to stop by at the “Feather Capital” of the world, which holds 90 percent of the world’s ostriches.
Finally, end your Garden Route tour in Mossel Bay for a unique experience at a series of popular attractions. These great attractions include visiting the oldest post office in Africa, the Post Office Tree as well as exploring some of South Africa’s heritage at the Bartolomeu Dias Museum Complex.
If you wish to continue along the Garden Route, visit some of the rest of its treasures such as Swellendam, Hermanus and Cape Town. Be sure to check out the amazing architecture of the NG Kerk in Swellendam, go whale watching in Hermanus, and tour the many wine farms on your way to Cape Town.
