The Garden Route, a 300 kilometre stretch of land, situated between Mossel Bay and the Storms River, is a magnificent place to explore if you want Cape Town to find its own place deep inside your heart. On this tour, you’ll spend 2 nights and 3 days travelling along the Garden Route while exploring all it has to offer.
Oudtshoorn, the largest town in the Little Karoo, has the biggest ostrich flock in the world! This quaint town, complete with its number of ostrich farmers, has about 330 days of non-stop sunshine, which makes it a fabulous place to visit all year round. With game farms, lodges and hotels galore, there is not stopping you from enjoying Oudtshoorn and its hidden gems!
Situated really close to Oudtshoorn is the Cango Caves. This cavity inside a rock formation is truly a sight out of this world. The Cango Caves, one of the world’s most magnificent natural wonders, can only be described as an underground world of wonders. Amazing limestone formations hanging from the cave ceiling and busting out through the ground makes this age-
old natural phenomenon a place all travellers need to visit.
The Cango Wildlife Ranch can be found about 3km from Oudtshoorn and is home to a number of endangered wildlife species. Here, you are able to spot cheetahs, snakes, crocodiles, jaguar and lions, just to name a few. Not only do you have the opportunity to build a solid education around wildlife preservation but you also have the chance to engage with a number of endangered species. With over 40 animal species to see, visiting the
Wildlife Ranch is a must-do while travelling along the Garden Route!
Filled with small-town charm, Knysna offers a wide variety of breathtaking views. With forests, lakes, beaches, flea-markets and an amazing marine reserve, it is here your heart will become part of the Cape. If it is animal-life you seek, you can look forward to spotting the Knysna Loerie, among other birds, in the trees as well as the Pansy Shell elephant.
Featherbed Nature Reserve
The Featherbed Nature Reserve, a Natural Heritage site, is situated in Knysna and privately owned. It is here where you, by ferry, can visit “The heads.” The heads, notoriously named from their shape, are two cliffs that are made of sandstone which stand at the entrance of the Knysna Lagoon to the sea. For many travellers, this might seem like a doorway or passage
into another world.
Ironically situated, Plettenberg Bay is a quaint town that was built on a hillside on the border of the Eastern and Western Cape. That way, no matter where you find accommodation, you will find spectacular views of the seaside as the downward slope of the town towards the sea forms the perfect getaway. In Plettenberg Bay, you can either opt for adventure or a leisurely
stroll along the pristine beaches.
Tsitsikamma National Park
Along the Garden Route, you will also get to visit the Tsitsikamma National Park. With high cliffs and spectacular views of coastal landscapes, this park is the perfect spot breathe nature deep into your lungs. Many species of fynbos grow here and marine life thrives within the waters of this park.
Addo Elephant Park
South Africa’s third-largest elephant park, Addo Elephant Park, is situated in the Eastern Cape. While herds of endangered elephants call this park their home, you will also find a number of other wildlife here, including hyenas and buck.
With so much to see, the Garden Route Tour will take you on a journey you will never forget!
