Journey to the Eastern Cape game reserves from the southernmost tip of Africa, and experience the best of South Africa, “a world in one country”. The Garden Route runs parallel to the Indian Ocean, through coastal towns, such as Plettenberg Bay and the Oyster Capital Knysna, as well as national parks proclaimed for their ancient forests and dramatic coastline. Travel a stretch of Route 62, the mountainous inland counterpart to the Garden Route that cuts through the semi-arid Little Karoo’s mountain passes, taking in sculptural rock formations, hot springs and some lovely historic villages. The Whale Coast – Monumental dunes and wild surf are reason enough to visit Cape Agulhas, but it is also renowned as the world’s top stretches of coastline for land-based whale watching. The Cape Winelands – Lime washed Cape Dutch manors set amongst vineyards beneath mauve mountains, and incorporating some of the country’s best culinary experiences.
