Garden Route

Itinerary Ideas

Garden Route Tour & More

A Garden Route tour is a natural combination with Cape Town but it’s also easy to combine with the Cape Winelands and Whale Coast – you can even do it yourself in a hire car. The roads are excellent and there’s a wide range of accommodation throughout the region. And if you’d like to add on some big game viewing, then a Garden Route safari is a straightforward solution: malaria-free, Big 5 game viewing in a variety of private reserves at the eastern end of the Garden Route.

To combine a Garden Route tour with South Africa’s top safari destination – the Kruger and Sabi Sands – we’d recommend a tour that flies to Johannesburg and then onto the Kruger. With airports at both end of the Garden Route – Cape Town and Port Elizabeth – this is easy to organise.
