Garden Route Splendour

View of Knysna, South Africa

Independent Tours

This six-day small group tour is all about experiencing South Africa’s most sensational seaside scenery as well as learning about the history and heritage of some of the out of the way villages and towns. Starting out from Cape Town you’ll drive through the Western Cape to Port Elisabeth with overnight stays in Mossel Bay, Oudtshoorn, Knysna and Tsitsikamma. It’s a comfortable and sociable way to travel with farmers’ markets, ostrich farms, wine estates and wildlife sanctuaries adding to an everchanging scenic backdrop. From the southernmost tip at Cape Agulhas and the breathtaking Bloukrans Bridge to tales from Knysna Forest and positive Make Travel Matter experiences – if you’re looking to see South Africa’s Garden Route, and make a few friends along the way, here’s how you do it.
