The Garden Route is a stunning stretch of indigenous forest, dramatic coastline and huge sandy beaches running east from Cape Town.
The area also boasts a number of ‘malaria free’ private game reserves in the Eastern Cape with some excellent game viewing and lovely luxury lodges offering you the perfect mix of beach and bush.
The Garden Route derives its name from its dense vegetation, including the famous fynbos, which characterises this coastline in contrast to the country’s arid interior. It’s a beautiful and easy route to drive, stopping at small towns, beaches, lagoons and nature reserves.
As well as lovely guest houses and unique lodges, there’s a huge variety of activities and game reserves en route. Some of the reserves only have plains game but the more established reserves such as Shamwari have the Big 5 and Addo has huge herds of elephant and some rhino. The Cape Reserves are great for children, being malaria-free, but also because some of the lodges cater specifically for them with children’s activities, children’s meals and babysitting services.
