“Every day was an adventure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2012

Everyone should take time in their lives to travel along the garden route in South Africa, whether it be self-drive or with a driver. There is so much to discover on the route, in whatever direction you decide to deviate from the main road.
Every day was an adventure for us - but be careful to observe the speed limits - we were nabbed and fined 350 rands on the evidence of a roadside camera (or maybe it was a satellite?)

“Brilliant 5 days: occasionally challenging but always interesting and beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2012

Our guide (Mark) was great - very knowledgeably and informative. Accommodation was very good - courtesy (mainly) of Cape Nature. All but one of our party had a special dietary requirement and the food catered for these - all very good. Some great sightings of birds, reptiles and animals that inhabit the beach.
When it got hot and the sand a little soft - the going became challenging - but there was a real sense of achievement at having completed each day.
