Johannes Travel Tip

Travel along the Garden Route

I myself enjoy the Garden Route, which is a beautiful coastal area that stretches from Hermanus in the West to Port Elizabeth in the East, that much that I have been more than once already. Always enjoying different parts experiences.

Start off in Cape Town and drive towards Hermanus which is a must see during whale season (June – December), especially for those that want to see and experience these big sea mammals. You can already see them from the shore, or you can do a whale cruise and learn more about their lives and habitat.

Further on the route there are small towns like Mossel Bay, Oudtshoorn or Knysna. While in Oudtshoorn you can visit ostrich farms or visit the Cango Caves, in Knysna one should schedule a visit to the Featherbed Nature Reserve which offers a nice outdoor activity including a hike and a boat ride across the Lagoon.
For adrenaline lovers the world’s highest bungy jump is awaiting at Bloukrans Bridge where you can test your courage or go surf the famous waves of Jeffreys Bay, amongst locals well known as J-Bay.
On the way to Port Elizabeth, there are more interesting things to see such as the Storms River mouth, the Addo Elephant Park and the beautiful landscape.

You see, there is much to see and do on the Garden Route, so when do you plan on going?
Contact Share Africa about self-drive tours, accommodation and all your activities you would like to do on the way. If you rather want to join an international bus tour, go ahead, there is plenty of options.
