Known as the "Jewel of the South", the scenic Garden Route is one of the major attractions of South Africa. This 220km stretch between Mossel Bay in the West and Storms River Mouth in the East is the most popular tourist route in the country. Along the coastal road, which is surrounded by the Outeniqua and Tsitsikamma Mountains as well as the Indian Ocean, we'll pass through lush forests along the steep and rocky coastline and long white stretches of beach. The Mediterranean climate here is pleasant and mild throughout the year. This is in stark contrast to the dry Karoo outback..
