The Garden Route



This spectacular drive along South Africa's south western coastline stretches from Heidelberg in the west for 200 miles towards Storms River in the east and is one of the most beautiful in the world. Countless spectacular beaches, nature reserves, indigenous forests and peaceful lagoons are flanked by the calm waters of the Indian Ocean and the majestic Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma mountain ranges.  Our hotels are all close to the charming town of Knysna with its magical lagoon and to the wondrous beaches of Plettenberg Bay. The drive from Cape Town to the heart of The Garden Route is approximately five hours’ drive; however, we can fly you to George if you prefer, which is just one hour from Knysna.
