Garden Route

A treasure trove of coastal vistas

Holidays to the Garden Route, an area of South Africa’s south coast – further east of Cape Town – involve a great deal of activity. The Garden Route is a mix of the modern with the natural. On the one hand you’ll find stunning golf courses and exquisite boutique shopping malls, while on the other are endless national parks, conservation areas, and scenes of picturesque natural beauty.

In this renowned region of the Western Cape peaceful seclusion is found. Bohemian artist communities lie side-by-side with ancient forests, and fisherman and woodcutter residents brush shoulders with top chefs.
