·· Garden Route Holiday:
THE Garden Route, stretching along the Southern coast of Africa is an area of unspoiled beauty and majesty and quite unlike any other region in Africa.
With a temperate climate and mild, year round weather, the Garden Route has a gentleness and tranquility which makes it unique. The coastline is at times rugged and rough with towering cliffs and turbulent seas, at times it is placid with gentle lagoons and golden white beaches, such as at Knysna, Plettenberg Bay and Wilderness.
There are numerous mountain streams, lakes and enchanting, temperate woodland forests. Beyond the imposing Outeniqua mountains lies the semi-desert region known as the Klein Karoo, home of ostrich farms and olive groves.
The Garden Route is ideal for exploring on a self drive vacation, driving either from Cape Town along the coast through Hermanus - the Whale capital of South Africa - or from the east at Port Elizabeth, with its nearby Shamwari and Addo Elephant game reserves.
The traveler can also access the Garden Route by scheduled flight from Johannesburg or Cape Town to George or Plettenberg Bay.
The region has a number of magnificent hotels, golf estates and country lodges. This is an ideal area to relax in after a wildlife safari, or to include in a romantic getaway or honeymoon as well as being ideally suited to families.
