African Travel Concept

Garden Route

Whilst the Garden Route in the Western Cape province of South Africa is an extremely scenic experience, it is the hidden destinations on its side roads that are the secret of this region.

That is probably how Oudtshoorn - the ostrich capital of the world - found its way onto the Garden Route. An array of modern and world-renowned golf courses, ancient forests, craft centres, mountain hideaways and beach holidays can be found on this breathtakingly beautiful route that stretches over 400 kilometres on the south west coast of the country.

The Garden Route is also famous for its hardy fynbos floral kingdom, its secluded little bays and its year-round holiday frame of mind. And it's conveniently accessible from Cape Town or Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape.

The Garden Route National Park, which weaves together the existing Tsitsikamma National Park's ancient forests and wild coastline with the Wilderness National Park through a chain of lakes and preserved sections of fynbos, is a fascinating mix of ecosystems providing natural scenery found nowhere else on earth.
