Garden Route Highlights
Garden Route Highlights OverviewWell priced itinerary taking in the highlights of Cape Town, Garden Route followed by a malaria free safari in the Eastern Cape before heading inland to Oudtshoorn and along Route 62 to Oudtshoorn and ending with 2 nights in the Winelands.
This 12-day itinerary showcases all the Garden Route highlights. Your holiday will start with 3 nights in the beautiful ‘Mother City’. You’ll be staying in a prime location, with a variety of popular local restaurants within walking distance, and just a 10-minute drive from the city centre.
The next part of your Garden Route highlights trip will take you to Swellendam where you will spend a night in a guest house in the historical part of the town. After breakfast you’ll set off for the heart of the Garden Route.
You will spend 2 nights in Plettenberg Bay, a picturesque seaside town with loads of activities and ways to explore the area. From beach and forest walks, to seaside hikes or visiting the nearby Birds of Eden, to simply relaxing on the sandy beaches and swimming in the warm waters.
From Plettenberg Bay you will head to the wilder regions of the Eastern Cape, where you’ll be spending 2 nights at the Amakhala Game Reserve. Here you’ll get to enjoy morning and afternoon-evening game drives, spending your days relaxing around the lodge and taking in the peaceful sights and sounds around you. From there the road takes you towards Oudtshoorn, fondly named the ‘feather capital’ due to its large ostrich populations, where you’ll spend a night on a working ostrich farm before heading back to the Cape Winelands.
You’ll spend the last 2 nights of your Garden Route highlights holiday in Stellenbosch. We recommend spending at least 1 day touring the nearby wine farms and going for dinner at one of the many popular local restaurants in this vibrant town.
