Garden Route Travel
The Garden Route in South Africa, as its name implies is an area that is richly endowed by nature, spectacular in many ways, graced with golden beaches, indigenous forests, lakes, lagoons and meandering rivers.
The rugged coastline, marked by a succession of bays, beaches, cliffs, coves and capes, links one beautiful resort to another.
Bordered in the north by a series of impressive mountain ranges, the interior is reached via a number of scenic passes.
The Garden Route stretches from Mossel Bay all the way through to the Storms River; en route take in the scenic towns of George, Wilderness, Sedgefield, Knysna and Plettenberg Bay.

Kurland Hotel ReviewTravellers in the UK and Europe are very familiar with the country house hotel. Old family manor houses or estates which have either been sold or still managed by their original families and converted into luxury hotels. Some of these homes are very grand but yet always convey a feeling of wellbeing, permanence and intimacy.
Elephant Hide Guest Lodge ReviewDriving west back towards Cape Town, you will come across Elephant Hide Lodge overlooking the Knysna lagoon. A much smaller and more straightforward affair than Kurland, it also conveys a similar sense of well-being. It contains seven Afro-chic cottages each surrounded by an indigenous garden of fynbos with panoramic views of the lagoon.
