Explore the Garden Route
 
Travel with Africa Exclusive on a journey of discovery along the Garden Route from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth, surely the most iconic drive in Africa. There’s wildlife on both land and shore, endless beaches, historic battlefields, and the vineyards are never far away. Self driving here is a breeze - though it’s also possible to have a car and driver - and with every bend in the road comes another dramatic view.
To experience a little bit of everything that South Africa has to offer, you can hardly do better than to drive the Garden Route along the coastal road between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. It is an extraordinary journey with ever changing scenery and all manner of different things to do. One day you might be whale spotting at Hermanus - renowned as one of the best whale watching locations in the world - and the next you could be learning about the Battle of Rorke’s Drift, handling antique weapons and scrambling over the British and Zulu positions.
Wildlife lovers will be in their element. Along the Garden Route are numerous places where you can stop your car and wander down to the beach to see penguin playing. The Marine Hermanus is our favourite spot for whale watching: it’s situated on a clifftop path, so you can frequently see the pods of whale from your window, or take a boat ride out to get up close to the whale and great white shark. During a stay at Mosaic Private Sanctuary you can combine your time on both land and water enjoying all manner of activities ranging from relaxing beach walks, quad biking, kayaking, cycling, whale watching, boat trips, spotting big cats and wine tasting to name just a few.
But the joy of travelling the Garden Route is also in learning about its diverse history and culture. Try a farm stay at De Zeekoe, a working ostrich farm covering 2,000 acres, or step back in time with a night or two at the elegant Schoone Oordt Country House, built in 1853. From Tsala Treetops you can visit the villages and towns of Plettenberg Bay, shopping and meeting local people, and there’s also a world class golf course. Wherever you choose to stay, you will undoubtedly experience the warm hospitality of South Africa’s people, your hosts and guides alike regaling you with stories which will enrich your visit.
