GARDEN ROUTE HOLIDAYS
South Africa is a land of splendor with rich cultural diversity and scenery.
Cape Town has the Big 6 attraction, but the Garden Route is the real deal. A garden route tour will leave your senses fulfilled.
The Garden Route can be done in anything from two to seven days depending on your particular requirement, and available time. Whether you fly into Johannesburg or Cape Town, there is always a way to start the garden route.
Storms River is a place that is truly awe inspiring which makes human beings pale into insignificance compared to nature. It is the best on the garden route in terms of pure natural forest scenery and wild Indian Ocean! Nowhere else on earth is the smell of ocean and forest so unique and refreshing.
Garden Route tours should have at least two days to visit the wonders of Storms River. Bloukrans Bridge is a short distance from Storms River where the highest bungi platform is in the world. This 216 meter (>700 foot) plunge is exciting to watch from the safety of the viewing deck. Storms River Bridge is a little closer to Port Elizabeth; also a real treat to view the gorge below and to use the rest stop facilities. South African holidays certainly offer a lot of diversity in terms of geography, marine environment and biome type.
The rolling grassland outside Port Elizabeth turns into foot hills and larger peaks at the entrance to the Tsitsikamma forest before ending at Plettenberg Bay. Ancient dunes converge on lakes connecting Knysna and Wilderness. This section of the Garden Route is an outdoor enthusiast delight with plenty of kayaking, fishing, birding and many other opportunities.
Technically Oudtshoorn (pronounced oats-horn) is not on the Garden Route, but nobody misses the beauty of the Ostrich Capitol, Oudtshoorn. The capitol of the Little Karoo is only 40 miles from George, and fits in well with a Mossel Bay visit.
Most importantly, the people of the country regions in South Africa make any garden route tour a trip to remember forever. We specialize in tailoring your South Africa holidays to fit your time-frame, budget and personal needs. Vacations are a time to forget about the cost and just focus on having a good time. Still finance options such as Wonga and other such companies mean your budget won't be stretched as thin.
