Drove from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town, we spent 2 nights in Knysna and also visited the ostrich farms and Cango caves. There are parts of the drive which are very beautiful especially the Storms River area but you do need to stop and do mini excursions along the way. If you're planning to drive all the way through without... More

The Garden Route should not be regarded as a highway, but rather a set of experiences that may be had along the highway. We stayed in Storms River, Knysna, Mossel Bay, Hermanus, Witsand and Capetown, spending time in outdoor locations along the way, as well as at the Penguin Colony at Betty's Bay. The views of mountains and see are... More

The garden route is an action packed travelers dream. Their is a variety of adult and kids entertainment and makes for a must go family destination. The beaches are awesome especially Victoria Bay where turquoise waters and possibly encountering dolphins in the waves will make your day. Should you wish for a little more mountain then pack a tent and... More

We were fortunate that we had a perfect day when we visited the area - it was just so scenic and the waves so impressive. Cheers - Jules

We walked to Storms river mouth and over the two hanging bridges. We had 4 young teens with us they enjoyed the stroll but not with out motivation. You do need comfortable shoes as it is a long walk with lots of stairs. The view is amazing. We had some dessert at the restaurant afterwards to recharge the energy levels.

Our drive from Knysna to Cape Town was a breathtaking experience. The colors of the landscape were extremely beautiful and as far as the eye could see there were lush lands and mountain ranges.This is a must drive atleast once of not again as there is no other possible way of seeing this most gorgeous sight in South Africa.

A good route in the middle of the sudafrica nature, expecially in the Tzitzikamma Park. Along this place it is possibile to stop for many different activities.

This 3-day leg was part of a larger 3-week trip to South Africa. The scenes along the coast were great. But we actually preferred the Panoramic Route (Limpopo, Mpumlanga and KwaZulu-Natal provinces) more.

Beautiful area. Must see. Crossing the suspension bridges lots of fun. Very easy hike. Entire path to bridges through the forest is on wooden planks. Not difficult at all! Highly recommend.
