We spent four days on the garden route and really enjoyed it. The scenery is stunning and includes beautiful beaches, amazing mountains and loads of plant life and greenery. We would love to go back one day and would recommend this as a great trip for anyone that appreciates plant life, scenery and a changing landscape.

We visited the National Park Robberg Island and did the two hours walking tour. Absolutely fantastic view. If you are lucky you even see seals. Take enough water with you and don't underestimate the sun!

It is beautiful, but if you've taken the coastal trips in California, Italy, France or elsewhere.....been there done that. This is no different. It's fantastic for hiker/mountain bikers, etc. But if you just wish to drive a different beautiful coast, no need. Take the R62 through the mountains, instead. This is a fanastic unique route from Cape Town to Port... More

We went to Tsitsikamma National Park after our visit to Knysna and on our way to Oudtshoorn. It was well worth the visit to see the various animals including elephants and giraffes.

Amazing green nature all around. Great roads. Some breathtaking views from the bridges. Espcially the Storms river bridge. Well worth driving through this area.

I was fortunate to travel many routes, but the Garden Route is one of the tops in the world. The sea views and lovely sea towns is just unbelievable.

Plettenberg Bay and some of the most spectacular views of the seashore, along with the many wooden areas and lovely little towns on both sides, make this route a real "Eden path".

The Route is pretty and full of things to do. We spent about 5 days on it doing a range of activities that we mostly didn't have to book in advance. Slept mostly in camping that didn't require advance booking as well. Might come back with my girlfriend on a more romantic angle.
