When considering South Africa as a tourist destination, most first time visitors will be interested in the classic highlights of our beautiful country. These usually include destinations like Cape Town (including the surrounding Winelands), the Kruger National Park and the Garden Route at the top of the list. The Garden Route stretches along the south-eastern coast of South Africa from Mossel Bay in the Western Cape to the Storms River and is well loved by adventure-seekers and outdoor enthusiasts.
The Garden Route is one of the most popular parts of South Africa for visitors both local and international. Stretching some 200km, a Garden Route road trip takes in national parks, dense forests, placid lakes and some outrageously beautiful beaches.

Known as much for its outdoor activities as its natural beauty, along the way you can learn to surf, leap into water-filled canyons, dive to shipwrecks or simply sit on board a yacht admiring the view with a glass of local bubbly in hand.

One thing that makes the Garden Route so special and attractive to travelers is that it is home to many "World's biggest, longest, firsts and of course most-loved" things to do and places to visit.

Come along as we guide you through our top 10 things to do (Yip! You will not get to experience these in Europe!)
