Sheltered bays, sheer cliffs and breaching whales - welcome to the Garden Route

Your Garden Route tour along South Africa's southern coast will take you through some of the most beautiful coastline in the world. Along the way you’ll pass golden sands, frontier towns, craftsmen’s houses and you’ll have the splendour of vast national parks to explore.

Naturally we’ll lay on fine hotels for you to stay in and the best restaurants to dine in - after all, all that scenic splendour can leave you needing some rest and relaxation.

Opting for a luxury self-drive holiday is a great way to enjoy the Garden Route, which runs between Mossel Bay and Storms River, linking some of South Africa’s scenic regions. Stop to indulge in a sundowner at a sheltered bay before you head for the Whale Coast, to the east of Cape Town. Between June and November you can catch whales in their natural habitat and enjoy the numerous pockets of fynbos - the unique flora of the region. Walk along the golden sands of Plettenberg Bay, marvel at the clear, blue waters of Knysna Lagoon and stroll through the forests of Tsitsikamma.

Garden Route tours with A&K are a great way to explore the region but if driving isn’t your thing, simply fly into George and you can start your adventure from there.
