South Africa's Garden Route is an ideal tourist destination for nature lovers, families, honeymooners, outdoor enthusiasts and adventurers. The region offers one of the world's highest commercial bungy jumps; forest canopy tours; ocean safaris; and hiking trails along the spectacular coastline and beaches and through indigenous forest.
Update: Due to track damage from severe flooding, the steam train attraction mentioned in the video no longer operates between George and Knysna. However, Rovos Rail offers luxury steam train journeys on other routes within the Western Cape.

The Search for the Knysna Elephants (promo)

The elephants of the Knysna Forest were hunted ruthlessly in the early part of the last century. Very little is known about the number of elephants that still might roam the forest wilderness. It is difficult to study an animal that you cannot find; some even doubt their existence.

But signs of their survival can still be found!

We'll all be Steam Train Enthusiasts after viewing this video!

South African Railways GEA 4023 and GMAM 4122 departs early in the morning from Oudtshoorn with the Union Limited, heading for George via the magnificent Montagu Pass.

This was filmed in August 2002. Sadly these locomotives are no longer operating. However, this video is a nostalgic view of the age of steam and showcases aspects of the Klein Karoo and Montagu Pass, Garden Route.
