The Garden Route is studded with bustling towns and holiday resorts like Knysna or Plettenberg Bay, as well as enough outdoor activities to keep everyone entertained. Hiking trails and forest canopy tours, whale watching and water sports, visits to Monkeyland and heart-warming interactions at the elephant sanctuary are just a few of the attractions.

However, it’s the blend of beach and mountains, town and country, excitement and experience that makes holidays on the Garden Route so alluring. It’s the perfect place for multi-generational families, and since the region enjoys a mild climate, you can visit the Garden Route all year round.

Ideal as a self-drive destination and set within a half-day drive from Cape Town, the Garden Route has been looking after South African families for generations with accommodation ranging from the cozy and comfy to the ultra-luxurious.
