The Garden Route

Close to a mountain range, and 'mind-blowing' beaches - this area is one of the most visited routes for tourists in South Africa. As the name says, the area is richly endowed by nature and has beautiful beaches along the warm Indian Ocean, untouched forests, lakes, lagoons and rivers. To the north the area is surrounded by beautiful mountains and they are accessed through beautiful mountain passes. The climate is pleasant most of the year. It can rain quite steadily, but preferably at night. Thus this also maintaines the green landscape.

Breathtaking scenery with impressive mountain ranges, vast expanses and a beautiful coastline with great beaches meet the visitors in this beautiful area, which is also called Eden or Paradise.

George is "the capital" in the The Garden Route and is an excellent base to explore this part of South Africa.
