HOTELS & RELAXING TRAVEL ON THE GARDEN ROUTE
The South African ‘Garden Route’ refers to a stretch of the Cape Coast that runs from Mossell Bay to Cape St Francis - a stretch of coastline that is world renowned for its impressive natural beauty & scenic appeal.
The heart of the Garden Route includes the holiday towns George, Wilderness, Knysna - with its open lagoon and the Knysna Heads, Plettenberg Bay, the Tsitsikama Forest, and the quaint town of Cape St Francis. Most of what there is to experience in this region can be found in and between these areas.
WHY VISIT THE GARDEN ROUTE?
Travel to the Garden Route for relaxing summer holidays in beachside towns, for open unspoiled undulating landscapes that roll between the mountain ranges and the rugged coastline, for crisp fresh air, for some of the cleanest beaches in the world, for equestrian and horse-riding holidays, for good, traditional food & wines, to take advantage of some of the quaint ‘Bed and Breakfast’ inns, or to admire the impressive residential architecture.
All-round, the South Africa Garden Route is a must-do holiday for those with the time, and at Robert Mark Safaris we use our thorough local knowledge of this area to organize it all for you.
