 Touring the Garden Route | Tips, Options and Local Tour Guides

The Garden Route is an exceptional region to tour. Nature has endowed this 250 Km (150 mile) stretch of South African coastline with breathtaking mountain panoramas, blue lagoons and estuaries, forests, sandy beaches and sheltered coves. Then there are the towns and villages of the Garden Route, each offering a unique charm to the region, providing warm hospitality, culinary experiences, spa and wellness resorts, craft markets and world class golf courses.

This is a region that defines ecotouring: Monkeyland primate sancturary, Birds of Eden, Knysna Elephant Park, forest and mountain reserves, private game reserves and the protection and restoration of the region's fynbos flora.

The Garden Route is the ideal vacation destination for nature lovers, families, honeymooners, outdoor enthusiasts and high adrenaline adventurers. The region offers one of the world's highest commercial bungy jumps; zip-line (flying fox); forest canopy tours; ocean safaris and more.
