A road trip along South Africa’s Garden Route should definitely be on your list of upcoming adventures! Cape Town alone is already worth the travel and has so much to offer that you can easily fill an entire week here: hiking up Table Mountain or Lion’s Head, great wine at one of the many wineries around Stellenbosch or a good coffee and cool market in the hip Woodstock neighborhood. And then there is the breathtaking Chapman’s Peak Drive, probably one of the most beautiful streets in the world which you can drive several times without it getting boring!

The best route option for your road trip along the Garden Route takes you through South Africa’s southernmost point, L’Agulhas, through quaint Wilderness on to Plettenberg Bay where several great adventures await you: from exciting kayaking tours and beautiful hikes through the Tsitsikamma national park and Robberg Nature Reserve to one of the hightest bungee jumps in the world! And a little later you can go swimming next to wild dolphins at the surf haven of Jeffeys Bay or gallop on the endless beach East of the city!

The Garden Route is one of South Africa’s most popular and interesting stretches of coastline, a temperate landscape of sandy beaches, indigenous forests, rocky shores and quaint towns where you can do everything from savour fresh oysters to watch southern right whales at play.

The Garden Route is a glorious 300-kilometre / 190-mile stretch of coastline in South Africa. It runs from the small town of Mossel Bay (Mussel Bay) to the mouth of the Storms River and takes in places of outstanding natural beauty along the way, like George, Knysna (pronounced ‘Nighs-nah’) and Plettenberg Bay. It’s called the Garden Route because of the lush coastal forests that line the wide sandy beaches – Tsitsikamma (pronounced ‘Titzee-car-mah’) National Park is rumoured to still have rare forest elephants walking among the huge old trees.

South Africa Garden Route – this road trip is pure adventure!
