Garden Route Travel Guide

Dramatic river cut gorges, beautiful beaches, rocky headlands and deep tangled forests are the quintessential Garden Route images.

Wilderness Town of Western Cape

Heaven on earth... - Wilderness is a paradise! The people are so chilled, and the town is so peaceful and beautiful. A must for anyone looking to get away from it all and enjoy all the Garden Route has to offer.

Camphers Drift Suburb of George

Camphers Drift - A great place to visit. It's only a few km from some of South Africa's great holiday destinations such as Knysna, Wilderness, Mossel Bay and Tsitsikama.

Hoekwil Town of Garden Route

Close enough to Wilderness - I was not sure if Hoekwil was going to be close enough to Wilderness and was a little hesitant to stay there. But as the accommodation prices were better than in Wilderness I decided to stay there. PERFECT if you want to go to Wilderness but don't pay the expensive beach cottage prices! It has an amazing feeling and a view that will blow you away! A definite YES!

Stormsriver Village Town of Tsitsikamma

Little magic Eden - Why didn't I ever stop here? I have driven past the village so many times and have just never stop there. The perfect place to stop for lunch or a free forest and picnic. STOP HERE on transit or better spend a night and do any of the many adventure activities...
