Officially stretching from Mossel Bay in the west to Port Elizabeth in the east, the Garden Route is actually a great drive all the way from Cape Town to the 'Big Five' game reserves in the Eastern Cape. Sleepy historic towns, endless desert skies, white sandy beaches and amazing wildlife all make the Garden Route a highlight of any trip to South Africa.

Essential information for the Garden Route
The best way to explore all that the Garden Route has to offer is by car from Cape Town. It is possible to take an internal flight to Port Elizabeth or George and collect your hire car from there, but you'll be missing out on the beautiful scenery of the Garden Route - the stunning mountain passes and the pristine coastline.
