Garden Route Holidays

Sandwiched between Africa's favourite city, Cape Town, and the malaria-free Big 5 reserves of the Eastern Cape is a sunny jigsaw puzzle of white-sand beaches, bird-filled lagoons, rolling farmland and thick forests: the Garden Route.

Garden Route holidays are your chance to explore South Africa's natural playground, where families, adventurers, nature-lovers and romantics come together to find a blended experience of beauty, action and indulgence.

Accommodation in the Garden Route is plentiful and varied: from bare-foot beach villas to 5-star hotels and luxury safari lodges in Big 5 reserves, you're bound to find the right place to unwind and socialise after a hard day at play.

Garden Route holidays are easy enough to organise: choose from our range of Garden Route tours, an A - Z of holidays encompassing everything from self-drive adventures to scheduled tours, golf extravaganzas and big game safaris. And if you can't find it, we'll tailor the perfect Garden Route holiday for you - just contact us, tell us your needs and we'll take care of the rest.

Experts Reviews

The Garden Route is a popular and scenic stretch of the south-eastern coast of South Africa.  I recommend hiring a car as this is the best way to explore the Garden Route’s beautiful beaches, forests, towns and lagoons.  I cannot think of a better family destination and I recommend ending your holiday with a malaria-free safari in the Eastern Cape.
