Garden Route DestinationsHarkerville, Garden Route

The beauty of the Garden Route is undeniable, but it is always even more delightful when combined with the serenity and calm of a little seaside suburb like Harkerville. This is a farm area that is situated between Plettenberg Bay and Knysna, which are both bustling tourist hubs along the Garden Route. This places it in the prime position to give its visitors convenient access to both, while still enjoying the peace and quiet of the South African coastline.

Harkerville boasts a gorgeous rural ambience, thanks to the farms and the beautiful indigenous forests that are all around. In addition, there are lovely streams running through the forests, which also go a long way in attracting many bird species, as well as insects and small mammals. This means that even permanent residents are able to enjoy the untainted luxury of the outdoors, on their very own doorstep.

The Harkerville area is particularly well known amongst mountain bikers that are looking for fun and adventurous routes to enjoy throughout the year. There are a number of routes that range in distance and difficulty. The Blue Route is the shortest, at 12 km long, and takes around 90 minutes to complete. The Yellow Route and the Green Route are 14 km and 15 km respectively, and promise stunning views. The Red Route is the longest, at 24 km, and is challenging, with some hairy sections on the edge of the cliff. There are also hiking and walking trails here for those that have not brought their bicycles along.

While visiting or staying in Harkerville, tourists are able to visit a number of the local attractions as they are all situated within a short drive. These include Birds of Eden, Monkeyland, Jukani, Adventure Land, the Knysna Elephant Park, Radical Raptors, and the Featherbed Reserve.
