Activity Holidays in Garden Route

The Garden Route is known worldwide as one of the most beautiful coastal drives on the planet – so is high up on the South Africa bucket list.

The route extends from Mossel Bay to Storms River, and connects Cape Town to Port Elizabeth. The Garden Route is one of the most popular self-drive holidays in South Africa with good reason – enjoy stunning scenery, amazing wildlife spotting opportunities and interesting places to stay along the way.

But don’t worry – if you can’t drive or don’t want to hire a car, there are still plenty of tours and other activities to help you experience the best of the Garden Route.

Best Time to Visit Garden Route

We recommend doing the Garden Route during the summer months when South Africa’s weather is at its best. Temperatures are at their hottest between December and March, but these are also the busiest months so if you want to beat the crowds you may wish to visit off season. It’s a bit cooler in April, May and June but it’s still a great time to visit and enjoy the natural wonders of the Garden Route.
