If Cape Town is the Mother City of South Africa, the Garden route is without a doubt her lovely daughter. The major tourist attraction of the Garden Route is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful stretches of coastlines in South Africa, if not the world. Majestic mountains closely guard a landscape filled with natural lakes, rivers and streams, sunny beaches and fairytale forests on the ocean’s side and the arid, stark beauty of semi-desert landscape on the other.
The Garden Route is an exceptionally popular destination in South Africa and this is again evidenced by the high standard and wide range of accommodation options offered to travelers. You will find luxury hotels in all of the major towns, like George, Plettenberg Bay, Mossel Bay, Knysna and Hermanus. Apart from hotels, the traveler also have a variety of other accommodation options open to them with many guest houses, bed and breakfasts, self catering apartments and holiday homes on offer.
