The Garden Route

Garden Route Trips

The stunning scenery makes this stretch of coastline one of the world’s great drives, and Garden Route trips are widely regarded as a highlight of any holiday to South Africa.

The wine region of Stellenbosch enjoys world-wide fame, and aside from great wines, the rolling vineyards set out below rising peaks are a photographer’s delight. From the coast there's also excellent land-based whale watching from August to early November. This area can be explored on foot or bicycle, and there's the opportunity to try abseiling, black-water tubing or even bungee jumping too.
