Accommodation unit allocated was not 1st preference. Maintenance & service of accommodation unit requires attention.

Very pretty area and scenic views. Nice eating places to stop on route. Check out the bungy jumping at Tsitsikamma. You'll see lots of monkeys along the roadside. Sunsets are amazing as your driving a long.

The term "Garden Route " has been given to the area, traversed by the N2, roughly from Tsitsikama in the east, through to Mossel Bay in the west. Since the N2 has been upgraded and the roadsides planted with indigenous fynbos, it can rightly boast of being one of the most picturesque areas in South Africa.The mix of forest, mountains,... More

We only spent a short time in Tsitsikamma but it really is a beautiful area. Whilst my children were doing the Canopy Tour my husband and I went to see the Big Tree, which is close by. This is an ANCIENT yellowwood, absolutely huge, reached by a lovely little walk. You can extend the walk if you wish as well... More

Anyone visiting South Africa should do the Garden Route. We did all three and it is breath taking. I highly recommend the Garden Route.

Situated in a SAN Parks area it is a beautiful park to stay in. It has various Chalets to stay in and a limited caravan park. Day visitors also welcome. It has a restaurant and small shop. You can join groups to dive, snorkel, trails or walk on the suspension bridge.

We self drove the garden route heading to route 62 from Knysna. The roads are great and the scenery nice too, although coming from New Zealand I think we are spoiled for coastal and mountain scenery here so we weren't completely blown away by the scenery. Food, accommodation and various attractions were all fabulous. Stopped off at the famous surf... More

We liked to travel through the Tstsikamma and wilderness park. The only problem was that we seee quite a lot of forrests when travelling in Finland. So it may be is was not so exited than for people down there, because SA doesn't have nature forrests as much as we have.
