Garden Route South Africa Tours Safari Holidays Road Trip Cape Town

Garden Route South Africa Tours

Garden Route South Africa tours are one of the world’s most iconic journeys. Whether you join a small group tour or take a leisurely road trip from Cape Town, the Garden Route South Africa represent eco-touring at its best - with small picturesque seaside towns, wonderful local food and charming guest houses, all set in unparalleled scenery. Combining Cape Town with one of our Garden Route South Africa tours or safari holidays is one of our most popular itineraries. Escorted tours are very popular, but this entire area is ideal for a road trip as the roads are good and relatively quiet, driving is on the left and you can travel at your own pace.
 
A favourite road trip route is travelling from Cape Town along the starkly beautiful Route 62, where the contrast between the lush coastal region and the arid Little Karoo is dramatic. Meander through small Winelands’ towns such as Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Robertson and Montagu to Swellendam – the third oldest town in South Africa with some wonderful examples of old Cape Dutch architecture. Continue to Oudtshoorn, the ostrich farming capital of South Africa, where you can view the stalactites and stalagmites of the cavernous Cango Caves and watch meerkats emerging from their burrows at sunrise.
 
The most scenic stretch of the Garden Route South Africa is between Mossel Bay and Plettenberg Bay, with scenic town such as Wilderness, Sedgefield and Knysna, which is set on a magnificent lagoon. Complete your Garden Route South Africa tour or holiday with a thrilling malaria free Big Five safari in Addo Elephant Park, or at a luxury private game reserve near Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape.

More information on Garden Route South Africa tours & safari holidays, or road trip from Cape Town:
 
Mossel Bay, Wilderness & Knysna
Some Garden Route South Africa tours & safari holidays take a detour to ascend the rugged Prince Albert Pass, whilst others opt for the more direct route across the stunning Outeniqua Pass to George, renowned for its Fancourt golf estate. A beautiful stretch of Indian Ocean coastline extends from Mossel Bay, where the Portuguese explorer Vasco Da Gama erected a cross, to Port Elizabeth, driving past the expansive beaches of Wilderness and lakes of Sedgefield, to the artists’ town of Knysna set on a vast lagoon. Here the must-do on any Garden Route South Africa tour or safari holiday is a visit to Featherbed Nature Reserve by ferry, followed by a nature walk and lunch under the milkwood trees.
 
There is also good access to wildlife, with Knysna Elephant Park offering interactions with these gentle giants. At Tenikwa Wild Cat Sanctuary you can observe cheetah, caracal and serval, while at Monkeyland and Birds of Eden you can see primates and bird species in their natural habitat, on Garden Route South Africa tours & safari holidays.
 
Plettenberg Bay
If it’s beaches you long for, head for Plettenberg Bay, which has four of the best in the country. Most Garden Route South Africa tours & safari holidays include some time beside the ocean and "Plett" is a perfect base. Known as the playground of the rich and famous, golfers will be spoilt for choice too, with a wide selection of world famous championship courses.
 
Adventure seekers should head to the Tsitsikamma Forest, where you can glide through the treetops in a harness, black water tube down the Storms River or bungy jump from spectacular Bloukrans Bridge, the highest bungy jump in the world.
 
Graaff Reinet & Camdeboo
Heading inland to Graaff Reinet, you can find Camdeboo National Park and the aptly named Valley of Desolation, as well as smaller wildlife sanctuaries such as Mountain Zebra National Park.
 
Port Elizabeth & St Francis
At the northern end of the Garden Route South Africa, you will find the beach resort of St Francis and the city of Port Elizabeth, which is the gateway to Addo and the malaria free big-five game reserves of the Eastern Cape.
 
Addo Elephant Park & Eastern Cape Safaris
Complete your Garden Route holidays with a thrilling Big Five safari holiday in Addo Elephant Park or one of the luxury private game reserves of the Eastern Cape, which are all malaria free.
