The Garden Route

Exploring The Scenic Garden Route

Glorious Natural Beauty

Stretching from Cape Town along the beautiful eastern coastline of South Africa past the oceanside towns of Plettenberg Bay, Knysna, and George towards Port Elizabeth, the glorious natural beauty of the Cape’s famous Garden Route seduces everyone. Stunning white sandy beaches framed by rugged, rocky shorelines and indigo blue ocean, picturesque lagoons and tranquil lakes, undulating hills, and mist-covered mountains make up the spectacular scenery of this magnificent coastline.

The Garden Route is a visual masterpiece, boasting dense indigenous yellowwood forests, pristine beaches, and secluded bays. From the Wilderness to Knysna, the landscape unfolds with ancient trees, providing a serene backdrop for nature enthusiasts and those seeking a respite from bustling city life.

Adventure-seekers find their haven in the Garden Route, as it offers a playground for outdoor activities. From adrenaline-pumping adventures like bungee jumping at Bloukrans Bridge to leisurely hikes in the Tsitsikamma Forest, the region caters to a spectrum of interests.


The Garden Route

Dense belts of ancient indigenous yellowwood forests line the coast from the Wilderness to Knysna, where one of several extremely rare Knysna elephants may be spotted, along with some of the world’s oldest yellowwood trees. Further along the coastal route, you’ll find pristine beaches, and secluded bays, such as Hermanus and Stilbaai, where Southern Right whales visit to calve and play at certain times of the year.

The densely wooded hillsides and lush, fertile valleys of the Outeniqua Mountains offer an array of outdoor adventure and recreation from hiking, mountain biking, kloofing, and camping to fishing, bird-watching, and more. Slightly inland from the coast in a semi-arid valley lies the town of Oudtshoorn, which is home to the world-renowned Cango Caves, and thousands of ostriches that are farmed here for their feathers and meat on a grand scale.

Head up the Garden Route on a custom-designed guided tour with Magical Africa and experience this extraordinary coastline in style.
