Wedged between the warm Indian Ocean and dramatic mountain ranges, the Garden Route is a perfect self-drive holiday destination that combines easily with a visit to Cape Town. Great for families, nature lovers and golfers.
Knysna is the unofficial capital of the Garden Route surrounded by forests, lakes, mountains and sea. This ever-popular tourist destination is a charming town of legend, history, arts and crafts catering to visitors’ every need or fancy. Knysna is situated on South Africa’s only National Lake, which is also the country’s largest permanent estuary flanked by two towering limestone cliffs.
If seafood is your particular passion, be sure to time your trip to coincide with the Knysna Oyster Festival in early July.
