Tsitsikamma was much better than I had anticipated. There were rock ledges where the waves and water would splash 25 to 30 feet high, making for some BEAUTIFUL photo shots. We saw quit a few Hyraxes, cute little mammals! There were many cabins with barbecue grills. It would be a lovely place to spend the night.

We were really expecting the Garden route to be some sort of a life changing drive after I had heard a lot about it from my friends. However, having been on the Great Ocean Road in Australia, this didn’t feel so spectacular. The road is definitely in the middle of mountains, with canola and other fields on the sides and... More

For us it is the best beaches and scenic coastline in South Africa. We had a recent holiday in the region in our mid winter and we had the best weather you can ask for. Knysna and surroundings has so much to offer, you must stay at least a week to discover all the things to do and see. It... More

What a testimony to the diversity of South Africa. The views of the Indian Ocean surpass those I've seen on five other continents. From the mountain passes to the lovely views from ocean cliffs, whales, shark, penguins, ostrich, elephant, big cats, or dozens of types of antelope - you will not be disappointed. All of the above pale only in... More

My husband and I did the garden route driving all the way from Durban up to Cape town! We dotted along our route and stayed many B&Bs which were excellent. The best B&B we stayed at was in Wilderness called Heritage Retreat. The owners were very gracious and wonderful hosts. The facilities and amenities were above par and it was... More
