The Garden Route
The Garden Route is the Cape's botanical treasure trove, and very popular amongst visitors, which means that Garden Route accommodation has in recent years grown into a rich selection from which to choose.
Garden Route Venues helps you make your choice of Garden Route accommodation by putting you directly in touch with the accommodation providers themselves, whilst guiding your choice with guest reviews, transparent accommodation rates and special offers.
The Garden Route is one long, effortless stretch of beach, incredible forests, craggy headlands, and breathtaking mountains that provide a backdrop to what can easily be termed a garden paradise. Through this meander a series of rivers and streams that pool at river mouths in lagoons and lakes, adding further beauty to a world already renowned amongst nature lovers.
Whatever your choice of accommodation, be it 5-star garden route hotels, luxury lodges, self catering or B&B establishments, Garden Route Venues makes it easy to free up your time to plan your activities, rather than worrying about where to stay.
Mossel Bay, George, Wilderness, Sedgefield, Knysna, Plettenberg Bay, Stormsriver, and more recently Stilbaai and Albertinia, are the towns that make up the Garden Route, although it has become pretty fashionable to cross over the Outeniqua Mountains whilst here, to add the Little Karoo towns of Route 62 to the bargain.
The region provides a stirring study in contrasts. From towns like Sedgefield on the edge of series of lakes with a long stretch of sandy beach, to the town of Oudtshoorn set in the semi-arid Karoo, Wilderness with its magical stretch of beach and lagoon and surrounding mountain passes, the holiday mecca of Plettenberg Bay or the beautifully lush Tsitsikamma National Park with forests filled with Yelowwood and Milkwood trees, there is inspiration for every type of visitor.
The Garden Route boasts some of the best boat based whale watching in the world. Add to this the access to nature reserves, the lovely old buildings, museums, markets, art galleries and restaurants of local towns, and the myriad adrenaline based activities such as sea kayaking, mountain bike trails, tandem skydiving, horse trails and diving, it is small wonder that the Garden Route is as popular as it is.
