South coast of South Africa
Where ever you are, you’ve most probably heard about the Garden Route in the Western Cape, and rightly so, for this is one of the most magnificent stretches of land in South Africa. The indigenous forests of Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma are a blend of Cape Fynbos and Temperate Forest. These areas offer exciting hiking trails and other eco-tourism activities.
There are almost 300 different species of bird life that can be found here, so make sure you have your binoculars handy on this trip! Stretch your legs on one of the many scenic hikes along your route. Adventure awaits when you visit the Tsitsikamma National Park in Storms River for activities like zip-lining, bungee jumping, kayaking and more. Along the route is Wilderness National Park, and is a world of lakes, rivers, estuaries and beaches against a backdrop of lush forest and lofty mountains.
The Garden Route offers you breathtaking views, a natural garden of rich, colourful vistas, with valleys and lakes, rivers and forests, a paradise for bird and nature lovers, an eco-destination deluxe, with miles upon miles of beautiful, white sandy beaches and countless things to do and explore.
As you set off from Cape Town, you’ll be on your way to some of South Africa’s richest botanical treasures.
