Angler’s Paradise is situated in the Eastern Cape, on the fabled Garden Route, with beauty on all sides. To the south there is 900 m of private unspoiled coastline, and to the north are the spectacular Tsitsikamma Mountains. Just 14 km from Angler’s Paradise you can access the famed Karoo via the well-known R62 Wine Route, and a mere 50 km away you will find the Tsitsikamma National Park and the Storms River Mouth, where you can enjoy more vigorous activities such as hiking, rock climbing, and bungee jumping. Angler’s Paradise offers a personal touch, with magnificent views of the coast, and is arguably situated on the most impressive and privately owned coastal site in the Tsitsikamma. The two houses have unfettered vistas of the wild ocean and are surrounded by forested kloofs, fynbos, pastures, and mountains. Angler’s Paradise is extremely private and tranquil, with no other developments within a 25 km radius, excluding rural farming facilities. The two houses are luxuriously appointed with newly refurbished kitchens, bathrooms, and bedrooms. The open-plan living and dining areas compliment the relaxed laidback atmosphere, and the cook on duty will enjoy endless sea views from the fully-appointed kitchens. A separate washroom is fully-equipped with a washing machine, dryer, iron, and iron board. Linen, bath towels, and blankets are provided. There is a choice of a fireplace in the one house, or an indoor braai in the other house, and while on holiday there is no need to miss out on sport or perhaps a favourite programme, as a full DStv bouquet is available. A home executive also services the houses on request. With seven private bass dams, you can be sure of a good day’s fly-fishing – the ultimate freshwater fishing experience. Your fishing experience can further be enhanced with sea fishing and rock-angling from the unspoiled coastline on your front door, or deep-sea fishing launching from the nearby world-famous Cape St Francis Bay. For the not-so-active among us, whale-watching is a firm favourite, with dolphins and other mammals vying for your attention. Settling down for the evening will afford you with unencumbered ocean vistas, catering for the discerning photographer. Should you be interested in other activities, you can sunbathe on the sheltered private beach, or swim in the beautiful rock pools. There are also several walks and trails to explore, which include a walk to the river in the kloof adjacent to Angler’s Paradise, or a walk along the rocks where one can have excellent sightings of not only dolphins and whales, but also of the resident Cape Clawless Otter. Guests will also have access to miles of quiet rolling farm roads which are ideal for mountain bikers.

Garden Route South Africa

Garden Route Self-catering Accommodation

Dramatic river cut gorges, beautiful beaches, rocky headlands and deep tangled forests are the quintessential Garden Route images. Stretching from anywhere between Stilbaai and Mossel Bay in the west, to Stormsriver or Port Elizabeth (PE) in the east, it's a gorgeous stretch of coastal paradise strung out along the N2. Purists will squash it up between Mossel Bay and Stormsriver but, as the popularity of the Garden Route grew and small towns at its edge realised the marketing potential, it just seemed to spread. No problem - it spread to some cool places.

The towns generally accepted to be part of the Garden Route are Mossel Bay, George, Wilderness, Sedgefield, Knysna, Plettenberg Bay and Stormsriver. Stilbaai and Albertinia have snuck in on the West and Humansdorp and even Port Elizabeth are muscling in from the east. Inland, the Little Karoo and Route 62, which have no pretensions to being the Garden Route, are often treated as the same destination, as it's pretty easy zigzag between them by driving the many scenic passes over the Outeniqua Mountains. Initially the Garden Route was seen as very much a beach and/or family holiday destination, which it is, but there is also so much to do. There's great hiking, with rambles ranging from an hour to a few days covering rocky coasts, deep forests, pretty fynbos and long sandy beaches. The diving is good, as is the surfing, and there are some fun sea kayaking and flat water paddling trips. Some of the country's best mountain bike trails snake through the forests, and there are horse trails for every taste and level of ability. Tandem skydiving, paragliding, and a range of scenic flights all offer different birds eye views.

The Garden Route offers some of the best boat based whale watching in the world, flower lovers and birders will also have a field day traipsing off through the forest or the fynbos, and there are numerous national parks and nature reserves. Steam buffs will love the narrow gauge Outeniqua Choo-Tjoe. For the more culturally inclined, there are township tours, museums, lovely old buildings, funky craft shops, markets, art galleries and loads of live music venues. And, of course, a flotilla of great restaurants - many of which specialise in seafood - in each town. The Garden Route is a golfer's dream destination - you could play a different course every day for a week and still have a few left over.

Of course, this is not all good news as golf courses use an exorbitant amount of water and take up vast amounts of space but, as long as the golf-estate-building spree fizzles out soon, there should be sufficient space remaining between the fairways for a bit of forest, perhaps some shops and even a house or two. But that's not your problem, is it? If you fancy a round in paradise, get in now before it closes down. And if golf is too slow for you - there are more international standard polo fields in Plett alone than there are in the rest of the country put together. You could spend anything from a weekend to a month at a tailor-made polo clinic.

But what the Garden Route is most suitable for is relaxation - and even that's been somewhat institutionalised with almost every second hotel housing a wellness centre or spa. Not that that's a problem, mind. After a hard day on the beach you'll probably need a chocolate mud bath, colour therapy or hot stone massage.

Dramatic river cut gorges, beautiful beaches, rocky headlands and deep tangled forests are the quintessential Garden Route images. Stretching from anywhere between Stilbaai and Mossel Bay in the west, to Stormsriver or Port Elizabeth (PE) in the...
