The Garden Route is the most beloved of all coastal journeys in South Africa. Stretching from the west in Cape Town and continuing east to Port Elizabeth, this route passes beautiful scenery of mountains, farms, quaint towns and Blue Flag beaches. 


The scenic plant-life of the Cape floral kingdom and coastal forests all along the region provides the name 'Garden Route'. 



The Jewel of this route lies in the town of Knysna and it's surrounding forests and protected parks. While the vibrancy of Cape Town, the excellent wines of the mountains, and the tranquillity of quint villages provide a wonderland for any explorer.
