In November 2014 I made my first journey down to South Africa and spent over half of that trip traveling from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth along the famed Garden Route. Check out my tips of the must-stop places along the garden route… and beyond!
“One of South Africa‘s most treasured gems is the beautiful Garden Route, a stretch of lush landscapes reaching along the south shore from Mossel Bay on the Western Cape to Storms River on the Eastern Cape. A scenic road dotted with beautiful beaches, quaint farms, and wild terrains, the Garden Route is sure to delight you – add a stay in cosmopolitan Cape Town, a day or two in the Cape Winelands, and a safari experience and you will make enough memories to cherish for a lifetime.”
