A to Z list of Garden Route and Little Karoo Hotels, Guest Houses and Safari Lodges


The Garden Route and Karoo, lies in the southern region of South Africa, and is an area stretching some 300km along a magnificent coastline dotted with rivers, forests and fine beaches and inland beyond the soaring mountains into a semi-arid but fertile region known as the Little Karoo.

The area is very easy to self drive, either from Cape Town or Port Elizabeth, but there are airports at Port Elizabeth, George and Plettenberg Bay for those who prefer to fly in and be transferred to their accommodation. Among the top game lodges in the area are Shamwari and Riverbend, while popular choices in the seaside areas are Emily Moon, The Plettenberg, Kurland, Hog Hollow and Fancourt.
