South Africa Things To DoThings To Do in the Garden Route

The beautiful and dramatic Garden Route, that stretches from around Mossel Bay to the Storms River Mouth, is an area dense with forests, beaches, lakes, rivers, kloofs and hardwood trees and is regarded as one of the most beautiful regions in the country. The area is jam-packed with things to do, and visitors are spoilt for choice. Simply driving the Garden Route is a joy, with countless picnic spots, viewpoints and attractions. From mountain biking through the Harkerville Forest, bird watching in the Wilderness National Park and abseiling into the Kaaimans River, to black water tubing down the Storms River, one is never at a loss for things to do.
