Best Experiences in Garden Route

Coastal Beach

Embark on a coastal adventure along South Africa’s enchanting Garden Route and discover the allure of pristine beaches. From the rugged cliffs of Tsitsikamma to the tranquil shores of Plettenberg Bay, each beach along the Garden Route tells a unique story of beauty and serenity. Whether you’re basking in the sunshine, taking a leisurely stroll along the shoreline, or immersing yourself in the refreshing sea breeze, the beaches along the Garden Route promise a rejuvenating experience, complementing the region’s diverse landscapes with a touch of coastal bliss.

Elephant Encounter

Engage in a personal and intimate encounter as you walk beside these gentle giants during the Elephant Encounter. These elephants comprise relocated animals, orphaned calves, and those rescued from culls. This distinctive experience enables you to establish a close connection while respecting the elephant’s terms. As you enjoy the close presence of these majestic creatures, you provide them with the freedom and space to determine their movements, dietary choices, and social interaction, creating an environment where elephants can freely exhibit their natural behaviours.


Several high-quality estates in the Garden Route produce excellent wines. The cool, damp winters and mild summers along the coast provide ideal conditions for growing red, white, and rosé wines, with the Plettenberg Bay area specializing in particularly refined sparkling wines. These centrally located wine farms allow visitors to enjoy the diverse flavours of the region without straying too far from the main roads of the Garden Route.

Sunrise With The Meerkats

Indulge in one of the most extraordinary encounters by enjoying breakfast in the wilderness, surrounded by meerkats emerging from their burrows for their morning stretch at the meerkat conservation site. While sipping your coffee, witness these charming creatures as they step into the sunlight and carry out their daily activities of foraging and playing. These habituated wild animals remain untouched and unfed by humans but are accustomed to being observed. This unique experience provides a glimpse into their natural life, complemented by insights from wildlife specialists.
