The Garden Route in South Africa, as its name implies is an area that is richly endowed by nature, with its golden beaches, indigenous forests, lakes, lagoons and meandering rivers. Whether you're paragliding over sandy white beaches, spotting dolphins and whales from the air or exploring the deep indigenous forests; it's a place where nature rules, and it does so beautifully. While outdoor activities take centre stage on a Garden Route holiday, fine food and drink are always at hand – this is South Africa's oyster capital after all. With some of the country's best beaches and a climate that is perfectly suited to playing outdoors, Garden Route holidays closely follow Cape Town holidays as being the most popular in South Africa.
