5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

South African Tourism at it's best. Roads are well signed and maintained. National Parks are immaculate and accessible. All hiking trails and lookout points are easy to use offer breathtaking views.

“another great visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

we really enjoy our annual visit to this region.
we visit the wilderness and stay on the lovely laggon, then onto knysna where we again stayed on the lagoon.
we then stayed at the crags and enjoyed nature valley and birds of eden, monkey land etc.
we visited storm river which is spectacular and would recommend a visit to thid idyllic spot.
we chickened out of the famous bungy jump there!!

“Not the best in South Africa”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

We were driving from Jo'burg to Cape Town and were very much looking forward to the famous Garden Route. When we got there, we were actually a bit disappointed. Maybe after we had seen so many beautiful spots along the East Coast our expectations were a bit hard to meet. It certainly does have great spots like Wilderness, Stormy River Mouth, Knysna etc but dont miss out on all the other beautful spots in South Africa. There's so much more out there.

“Garden of Edan and the Big Tree”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

We recently went to Plettenberg and went to various Sanpark Tsitsikamma National Park, the first being Garden of Edan and the Big Yellow wood tree. Both an experience to see, the trees are something and must say again the Sanparks staff are very nice and the bathrooms well kept and clean. Sorry to say there are signs telling people not to write on the trees but of course this is ignored, people are so destructive and arrogant.
If you are in the area well worth seeing
